Media reviews
...a wide array of authors from all sorts of disciplines (including aquatic microbiology, medicine, veterinary medicine, and plant sciences) come together to create this volume. ...the information that is presented and the manner in which it is presented will optimize the utility for ecologists and perhaps encourage further exploration of viral ecology. Laura G. Leff, Kent State University, in ECOLOGY (February 2001) "...excellently organized and clearly communicates the different 'strategies' and their ecological/evolutionary rationales. Useful reading for any general biologist and should probably be required reading for medical students to help them understand the dynamic and shifting nature of viral disease. My general impression is that the book fills an important new conceptual niche and that microbiologists or other biologists interested in communicating ecological and evolutionary principles in the context of such a versatile class of organisms would be able to use this book as a text for a heterogeneous class of advanced students. [The authors] will help people focus on broader issue and roles of viruses rather than just as pathogens and tools." @source Gregory S.
