Media reviews

a useful addition to the library of any teach or researcher in microbiology. (Biomolecular Engineering, March 2003) "...expanded and reorganized based upon the rapid growth in the field since the last edition...highly recommended..." (E Streams, Vol.5, No. 12, December 2002) "Microbial Physiology (4th ed.) by Moat, Foster, and Spector is much improved compared to previous editions. The graphics in particular are vastly enhanced, making this a very useful book." (ASM News)
