This book has arisen from the Second European Meeting on Bacterial Genetics and Ecology (Bageco-2) held at the University of Wales, College of Cardiff which we organised on 11-12 April 1989. The meeting was attended by some 60 participants from eight European countries and was made possible by partial financial support from the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) and Imperial Chem­ ical Industries (UK) Ltd. The meeting was organised to discuss modern developments in the genetics of bacteria in aquatic and terrestrial habitats. It followed on from, and complemented, the first meeting of this series organised by Jean-Pierre Gratia in Brussels during April 1987 which concentrated more on medical and epidemiological issues. ! The next meeting will be organised by Michel J. Gauthier in 1991 at Nice, France. If you have been fired with enthusiasm for ecological bacterial genetics after having read this book, and want to attend the next meeting but did not hear about the one in Cardiff, you should write to Dr Gauthier to be put on the address list. A lot is now known about bacterial genetics at the physiological, biochemical and molecular level, and bacterial ecology has developed rapidly over the last 20 years. However, until very recently, few researchers have crossed the divide and linked these two specialisms.

Review:

...this...book is a useful and timely initiation into bacterial genetics in the environment and has much to commend it... Society for General Microbiology; ...the book is well worth reading...the book presents tantalizing glimpses of the current state of knowledge of gene transfer in the environment and whets the appetite for future developments in the field. Trends in Genetics; ...The chapters in this book are of a consistently high standard and give an excellent account of the problems and issues of this area of ecology... Biochemical Systematic and Ecology

Synopsis:

The release of genetically engineered micro-organisms into the natural environment has great potential for agriculture, but much basic research is still needed, particularly in regard to the possible unforseen consequences and risks posed by the transfer of genetic material from one organism to another. This book presents a survey of current thinking on this important topic, synthesizing the genetic and ecological aspects. Following an overview of some general aspects of the study of genetics in natural environments, such as genetic approaches to gene transfer in microbial communities, factors influencing dissemination of DNA by bacterial conjugation, the interaction of phages with their environment, and factors limiting gene transfer in bacteria, aquatic and terrestrial environments are considered in the contexts of these aspects. Plasmid transfer in the epilithon, genetic transfer in the marine environment and in activated sludge, the factors affecting bacterial survival, and laboratory tested methods for investigating genetic transfer in water systems are discussed with reference to the aquatic environment.

Similarly, for the terrestrial environment, plasmid transfer between soil bacteria is followed by a discussion of gene transfer in polluted soils and the rhizosphere, and by consideration of the use of a model system in studying gene transfer among micro-organisms. The role of soil bacteria in risk assessment analysis and the use of wide host range promotors to monitor the fate of recombinant DNA in soil, are examined, as is gene transfer between steptomycetes in soil, since these are important for the maintenance of soil fertility. An examination of the survival of genetically engineered organisms with reference to man-made surfaces and animals completes the discussion.
