About this book

Aquatic microbial ecology has become a well-established discipline that is still growing in size and attracting practitioners from other disciplines.

The third edition of Microbial Ecology of the Oceans, features new topics, as well as different approaches to subjects dealt with in previous editions. Microbial Ecology of the Oceans starts out with a general introduction to the changes in the field observed since the second edition, as well as looking at the prospects for the coming years. Chapters discuss ecology, diversity and function of microbes and of microbial genes in the ocean, as well as the structure of the microbial ecosystem, discussing in particular the sources of carbon for microbial growth. The biology and ecology of some model organisms, and how we can model the whole of the marine microbes are dealt with and some of the trophic roles that have changed in the last years are discussed. Finally, the role of microbes in the oceanic P cycle are presented.

Microbial Ecology of the Oceans is for advanced undergraduates, beginning graduate students, and colleagues from other fields wishing to learn about microbes and the processes they mediate in marine systems.

Review of the second edition:

"The collection brings together concepts from autoecological studies of individual bacterial groups and from ecological studies of microbial assemblages."
