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.

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.
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.Review:
