What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

​“Overall the three book series is an excellent resource that describes a new vision for microbial ecology based upon the guiding principles of evolution, habitat, and niche.The series provides a rich set of examples that emphasize all three aspects of these guiding principles along with the interaction of microbial species within the context of these guiding principles.The series is a must read that provides a new look at how the microbial world works.” (Helena M. Solo-Gabriele, Ph.D, P.E., Professor of Environmental Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Miami, Miami, Florida, USA)
