There is growing awareness that important environmental
transformations are catalysed, mediated and influenced by
microorganisms, and geomicrobiology can be defined as the influence
of microorganisms on geologic processes. This is probably the most
rapidly growing area of microbiology at present, combining
environmental and molecular microbiology together with significant
areas of mineralogy, geochemistry and hydrology. This volume
focuses on the function of microorganisms in the environment and
their influence on 'global' processes. It will include state-of-the
art approaches to visualisation, culture and identification,
community interactions and gene transfer, and diversity studies in
relation to key processes. This overview for researchers and
graduate students will represent environmental microbiology in its
broadest sense and help to promote exciting collaborations between
microbiologists and those in complementary physical and chemical
