About this book

An updated text exploring the properties of the soil microbial community 

Today, the environmentally oriented specialties of microbiology are shifting from considering a single or a few microbial species to focusing on the entire microbial community and its interactions.  The third edition of Soil Microbiology has been fully revised and updated to reflect this change, with a new focus on microbial communities and how they impact global ecology.

The third edition still provides thorough coverage of basic soil microbiology principles, yet the textbook also expands students’ understanding of the role the soil microbial community plays in global environmental health and human health. They can also learn more about the techniques used to conduct analysis at this level.

Readers will benefit from the edition’s expanded use of figures and tables as well as the recommendations for further reading found within each chapter.
- Considers the impact of environmental perturbations on microbial community structure as well as the implications for soil system functions
- Discusses the impact of soil microbial communities on food and health related issues
- Emphasizes the importance of soil microbial communities on the sustainability of terrestrial ecosystems and solutions to global issues

This third edition is a suitable text for those studying soil microbiology and soil ecology at the undergraduate or graduate level. It also serves as a valuable reference tool for professionals working in the fields of reclamation and soil management.
