9780124158368: Bacterial Biogeochemistry, Third Edition: The Ecophysiology of Mineral Cycling

Bacterial Biogeochemistry, Third Edition focuses on bacterial metabolism and its relevance to the environment, including the decomposition of soil, food chains, nitrogen fixation, assimilation and reduction of carbon nitrogen and sulfur, and microbial symbiosis. The scope of the new edition has broadened to provide a historical perspective, and covers in greater depth topics such as bioenergetic processes, characteristics of microbial communities, spatial heterogeneity, transport mechanisms, microbial biofilms, extreme environments and evolution of biogeochemical cycles.

  • Provides up-to-date coverage with an enlarged scope, a new historical perspective, and coverage in greater depth of topics of special interest
  • Covers interactions between microbial processes, atmospheric composition and the earth's greenhouse properties
  • Completely rewritten to incorporate all the advances and discoveries of the last 20 years such as applications in the exploration for ore deposits and oil and in remediation of environmental pollution

From the Back Cover:

During most of the Earth's existence, bacteria were almost exclusively responsible for the biogeochemical cycling of elements. In the extant biosphere, biological transformations of matter are still dominated by bacterial activity and many important biogeochemical processes (including methane production and consumption, and nitrogen fixation) are exclusively carried out by bacteria.
Bacterial Biogeochemistry is the expanded and revised Second Edition ofBacteria and Mineral Cycling . It is the new definitive treatment of this subject, written by world-renowned experts.
The new edition provides a detailed treatment of:
* Microbial processes in different types of habitat
* Element cycling on a global scale
* Bacterial metabolism in the environment
* Microbial symbiosis
* Decomposition of soil
* Food chains
* Nitrogen fixation
* Assimilation and reduction of carbon, nitrogen and sulphur
* Bioenergetic processes
* Characteristics of microbial communities
* Spacial heterogeneity
* Transport mechanisms
* Microbial biofilms
* Extreme environments
* Evolution of biogeochemical cycles
* Interactions between microbial processes
* Atmospheric composition
* the Earth's greenhouse properties.
This book is the essential reference for all those studying or actively involved in the fields of microbiology, ecology, limnology, soil science, geochemistry, plant nutrition, marine microbiology, microbial metabolism, bioremediation, environmental restoration communities and for those pursuing global change.
