Many bacteria in the environment exist in a ′viable but not culturable′ state, sometimes even dominant and not yet possible to culture in the laboratory. This book presents the most up–to–date and comprehensive discussion of this remarkable phenomenon available. From a historic overview to the cutting–edge future of the field, it highlights the wide implications of the VBNC state in medicine, public health, environmental science, agriculture and biotechnology
