For senior undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses in Soil Microbiology, Microbial Ecology, Environmental Microbiology, and Soil Ecology. A useful reference for professionals such as environmental scientists, resource managers, and agriculturalists. Written by leading experts in the field, this comprehensive, balanced introduction to soil microbiology captures the rapid advances in both the fundamental knowledge and potential applications of soil microbiology-e.g., habitats and organisms, microbially mediated transformation, and applied environmental topics. Carefully edited to ensure a uniform style and consistent usage of terminology, it helps students make the transition from traditional introductory, single-authored texts to typical multi-authored scientific treatises which, to keep current, they will consult as professionals.
