Overview

Like the successful first edition, Microbial Ecology of the Oceans, Second Edition is unique and fills a void in the rapidly growing fields of marine microbiology, microbial ecology, and microbial oceanography. Here, a carefully selected team of international experts explores issues of enduring importance to microbial ecologists, including: Genomes and metagenomes of marine microbes, Microbial evolution, as revealed by molecular techniques, Microbes in carbon budgets and cycles, Viruses and grazers of bacteria, Microbes and N cycle reactions in sediments, The role of microbes in food web dynamics, Biogeochemical cycles in the ocean.

In addition to drawing on the long history of microbiology, the contributors also include discussions of the latest advances in biological and chemical oceanography to examine the role of microbes and viruses in the oceans.

Richly illustrated with black-and-white photographs and drawings, and complemented with a comprehensive list of additional reading for each chapter, this important new edition provides readers with current information in the fields of marine microbiology and microbial ecology. It is designed for students and researchers in biological and chemical oceanography, geochemistry, marine chemistry, freshwater ecology, and general microbiology. It is also appropriate for professionals and advanced students in related fields.

About the Author:
David L. Kirchman, PhD, is the former editor-in-chief of the journal Limnology and Oceanography and has published over 100 papers in microbiology and the marine sciences. He is an internationally recognized authority in microbial ecology and biological oceanography

This book focuses on processes related to global carbon cycling, including the flux of carbon and energy through marine ecosystems, nitrogen fixing, and iron uptake by marine microbes. In addition, it studies the role of viruses in determining species diversity of marine microbes, the controls of bacterial growth rates and production, viability of marine bacteria, marine symbiosis, and thermal vents as the source of marine hyperthermophiles.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The collection brings together concepts from autoecological studies of individual bacterial groups and from ecological studies of microbial assemblages." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 2 June 2001)

"...useful resource for everybody working in this field...well-written material and simple and lucid illustrations...would serve as an excellent primary source of information on virtually any aspects of marine microbial ecology." (Choice Vol. 38, No. 9 May 2001)

"...this is an excellent book...will serve as an authoritative source on bacterial life in the water column...I recommend it warmly to anyone interested in biological oceanography and the microbial life in the sea." (Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, Vol. 269, 2002)

Summarizes basic information known about microbes as components of the food webs and elemental cycles at work in the oceans. The collection brings together concepts from autoecological studies of individual bacterial groups and from ecological studies of microbial assemblages. Topics of the 16 contributions include microbial evolution as revealed by molecular techniques, microbes in carbon budgets and cycles, control of bacterial growth in idealized food webs, the impact of viruses on bacterial processes, interactions between bacteria and their grazers, the marine microbial nitrogen cycle, and symbiosis and mixotrophy among pelagic microorganisms.
