ASM Press, 1997 - Medical - 894 pages
As part of its continuing service to the microbiological sciences, ASM is proud to publish this major manual. The Manual of Environmental Microbiology will serve as a state-of-the-art compendium of methods for environmental microbiology.
The basic principles of environmental microbiology and general methodologies are presented in Section 1 and 2. The core sections are structured by the type of environmental medium being discussed. This valuable book also covers the natural fate of microorganisms in the environment as well as the strategies and techniques of eliminating environmental microorganisms that are pathogenic to humans, plants, and animals.
MEM has major sections on general methods, water and public health microbiology, aquatic environments, subsurface and landfills, aerobiology, and biotransformation and biodegradation. This book surveys a vast amount of microbial biology, environmental science, research methods, and field methods for the practice of environmental microbiology.
Intended for university, industry, and government scientists as well as those who regularly conduct environmental monitoring and consulting, MEM will also serve as an important text for advanced level courses in environmental microbiology and microbial ecology. This landmark effort, written and edited by leading researchers and instructors, is certain to become the gold standard in its field, in the tradition of ASM's other renowned, authoritative manuals.
