Media reviews
'Each chapter is well-referenced and the book is attractively bound and presented. I can recommend it as a worthwhile addition to any research group interested in pursuing the biofilm concept.' P. A. Lambert, The Journal of Medical Microbiology ' ... provides a valuable update on earlier biofilm texts.' Society for General Microbiology 'The book will be a valuable aid in the many areas of pure and applied science and in industry where biofilms are of importance.' J. Makk, Acta Botanica Hungarica
