Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A reference for students and professionals in microbiology, microbial science, and environmental science, combining basics of science with recent advances, plus high-quality color photos. Interactions between the environment and the dominant microflora are discussed, as are interactions between the various components of microflora; however, emphasis is on understanding principles. After an overview of environmental microbiology, sections cover aquatic, terrestrial, and extreme environments, with chapters on areas such as marine and freshwater environments, micro-organisms and higher plants, and saline environments. Varnam is affiliated with the University of North London, UK. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
