Seeming sometimes more like science fiction than science, anaerobic bacteria have been at the center of a number of exciting new discoveries. This volume discusses and explains the diversity of metabolism, modes of protein transport, molecular biology and physiology of these unusual microbes. It has practical applications ranging from wastewater treatment to clinical diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This excellent and extremely comprehensive ‘up-to-date’ book points out both the immense importance of anaerobic microorganisms in the environment and their extreme diversity. … This book will be of great interest to microbiologists with a special focus on investigations concerned with microbial physiology, energy generation in microorganisms, and metabolic potentials in environmental and industrial settings. … An exciting book with a high scientific as well as practical and environmental impact … . Congratulations to the authors as well as to the editors." (A.Schmidt, Chemotherapy, Vol. 5 (2), 2004)
