"I would strongly recommend it for library purchase and the reading
list of advanced students in this field."
--"Microbiology Today," May 2009
Nearly a decade since its landmark publication, this book has
been thoroughly revised in this valuable new edition
Like the successful first edition, "Microbial Ecology of the
Oceans, Second Edition" is unique and fills a void in the rapidly
growing fields of marine microbiology, microbial ecology, and
microbial oceanography. Here, a carefully selected team of
international experts explores issues of enduring importance to
microbial ecologists, including: Genomes and metagenomes of marine
microbesMicrobial evolution, as revealed by molecular
techniquesMicrobes in carbon budgets and cyclesViruses and grazers
of bacteriaMicrobes and N cycle reactions in sedimentsThe role of
microbes in food web dynamicsBiogeochemical cycles in the ocean
In addition to drawing on the long history of microbiology, the
contributors also include discussions of the latest advances in
biological and chemical oceanography to examine the role of
microbes and viruses in the oceans.
Richly illustrated with black-and-white photographs and
drawings, and complemented with a comprehensive list of additional
reading for each chapter, this important new edition provides
readers with current information in the fields of marine
microbiology and microbial ecology. It is designed for students and
researchers in biological and chemical oceanography, geochemistry,
marine chemistry, freshwater ecology, and general microbiology. It
is also appropriate for professionals and advanced students in
