Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...I could hardly put this book down, I constantly refer to it and my own research has already benefitted from the knowledge and opinion contained within....I am sure you will find it a very useful reference text too; and also a very good read." J. Lunec, BSCB Newsletter

"...a timely reminder of the much-needed research effort in this area." John M. C. Gutteridge, Quarterly Review of Biology
