This volume is the result of a state-of-the-art symposium on biotechnology of anaerobic microbes, in honor of Professor Lars G. Ljungdahl on the occasion of his retirement and 80th birthday. The volume presents current work on the use of anaerobes for biomass conversion, cellulose degradation, and processes to produce alternative biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel.
