Processes in Microbial Ecology

David L. Kirchman

  • Presents the basic principles of microbial ecology using examples from both aquatic (freshwater and marine) and terrestrial ecosystems
  • Uniquely combines biogeochemistry (e.g. the carbon cycle) with basic ecology (e.g. predator-prey interactions and competition)
  • Focuses on biogeochemical processes, particularly their relevance to understanding issues in climate change
  • Demonstrates the importance of processes occurring on the micron scale to events happening at a global scale
  • Describes some of the latest technological breakthroughs, including ecological genomics, which have revolutionized the field of microbial ecology
  • Written by one of the leading scientists in the field
