About this book

Concentrates on the ecological aspects of microbial life covering a wide variety of topics including structure, behaviour, growth, dispersal, interactions and how microbes act as symbionts and pathogens.

I looked forward with anticipation to the publication of this textbook for a number of years and was not disappointed. BioScience
