9780471485292: Freshwater Microbiology: Biodiversity and Dynamic Interactions of Microorganisms in the Aquatic Environment

This unique textbook takes a broad look at the rapidly expanding field of freshwater microbiology. Concentrating on the interactions between viruses, bacteria, algae, fungi and micro-invertebrates, the book gives a wide biological appeal. Alongside conventional aspects such as phytoplankton characterisation, seasonal changes and nutrient cycles, the title focuses on the dynamic and applied aspects that are not covered within the current textbooks in the field.

  • Complete coverage of all fresh water biota from viruses to invertebrates
  • Unique focus on microbial interactions including coverage of biofilms, important communities on all exposed rivers and lakes.
  • New information on molecular and microscopical techniques including a study of gene exchange between bacteria in the freshwater environment.
  • Unique emphasis on the applied aspects of freshwater microbiology with particular emphasis on biodegradation and the causes and remediation of eutrophication and algal blooms.

From the Back Cover:

Freshwater Microbiology presents a broad overview of the biodiversity and interactions of microorganisms within a wide range of freshwater environments including lakes, rivers, wetlands, snowfields, aquifers and various extreme situations. The book offers a novel perspective on aquatic systems in considering freshwater biology from a microbial viewpoint and including separate chapters on algae, bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa within a single volume. Both applied and theoretical aspects of freshwater biology are presented concisely with numerous case studies, figures and tables throughout the book.

  • A detailed overview of all groups of microorganisms within the freshwater environment.
  • Integrates classical concepts of ecology with recent developments in cell and molecular biology.
  • Considers freshwater microbiology from a global perspective.
  • Includes case studies and numerous figures and tables.

Written by an author with many years teaching and research experience, Freshwater Microbiology will prove invaluable to students and researchers in the fields of freshwater biology, algology, microbiology, environmental biology and conservation ecology.
