Download Bacteriophage Ecology: Population Growth, Evolution, and by Stephen T. Abedon PDF

By Stephen T. Abedon

Bacteriophages, or phages, are viruses that infect micro organism and are believed to be the main plentiful and genetically different organisms in the world. As such, their ecology is significant either in quantitative and qualitative phrases. Their abundance makes an realizing of phage ecology more and more appropriate to bacterial surroundings ecology, bacterial genomics and bacterial pathology. Abedon offers the 1st textual content on phage ecology for nearly twenty years. Written by way of top specialists, synthesizing the 3 key techniques to learning phage ecology, particularly learning them in typical environments (in situ), experimentally within the lab, or theoretically utilizing mathematical or machine versions. With robust emphasis on microbial inhabitants biology and distilling state-of-the-art examine into uncomplicated rules, this publication will supplement different at the moment on hand volumes. it's going to hence function a vital source for graduate scholars and researchers, really people with an curiosity in phage ecology and evolutionary biology.

Bacterial Biogeochemistry: The Ecophysiology of Mineral Cycling

Bacterial Biogeochemistry, 3rd variation makes a speciality of bacterial metabolism and its relevance to the surroundings, together with the decomposition of soil, nutrients chains, nitrogen fixation, assimilation and relief of carbon nitrogen and sulfur, and microbial symbiosis. The scope of the hot version has broadened to supply a historic viewpoint, and covers in higher intensity themes equivalent to bioenergetic procedures, features of microbial groups, spatial heterogeneity, delivery mechanisms, microbial biofilms, severe environments and evolution of biogeochemical cycles.
