Editorial Reviews

A reference for use in an introductory microbiology laboratory course, featuring some 400 high-quality color photos. Photos are clearly labeled to aid in their interpretations, and text focuses on what is depicted in the photos. Bold-faced type is used to emphasize key terms. The most common laboratory procedures are discussed more extensively, with sections on purpose, tips for success, and expected results for each procedure. Procedures are grouped in sections on areas such as microscopic observation of bacteria and fungi, staining bacteria, and soil and water microbiology.

    Great photographs of microorganisms

    This book is a great companion for my Microbiology textbook. It is helpful when doing labs as it shows what most of your bacteria should look like. The pictures are large and colorful and helpful.

    Great photos, great text, great book!

    I loved this book. It's a very helpful companion to your microbiology/parasitology book and class. It has a beautiful paper and photos that will be hard to find elsewhere. Also the price is great, compared to other books or atlases. Don't think twice and get it!!. You'll be amazed by Mr. Steve K. Alexander et al.
