The literature in microbial ecology is growing rapidly. Journals in many countries dealing with microbiology, ecology, environmental sciences, and environmental technology are publishing an ever-increasing number of papers, and these reports are providing microbial ecologists with a wealth of information. The role of Advances in Microbial Ecology thus becomes more obvious with time. The articles in the present volume encompass an array of topics appropriate to the development of the discipline of microbial ecology.

Both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are subjects of attention, and a variety of microbiological groups come under review.

The ecology of protozoa, constraints on their populations, and their role in nutrient cycling and energy flow are considered by J. Norkrans presents information on a field that has blossomed in the last few years. The subject of the review by H. The focus is on bacteria, but they do provide many examples of other interesting microbes.

Each chapter includes a summary, recommendations for additional reading and review questions to focus class discussion. Microbiology is the only area of biology defined by the size and not the type of organism, making a comprehensive review of any aspect of microbiology difficult.

Microbial Ecology actually begins with a glossary, which students will find very helpful. The organization of the book into thirteen chapters spans a wide range of topics in Microbial Ecology. I carefully reviewed Chapter 10 on Microbial Processes Contributing to Biogeochemical Cycling and found it both comprehensive and clear.

The Figures in the chapter really enhance learning, and it goes well beyond the standard Carbon-Nitrogen-Sulfur cycling into Manganese, Iron, and even Hydrogen, Arsenic and Mercury.

Section The biogeochemical cycle material quantifies major reservoirs of carbon throughout the cycle, and the discussion of energy demands and yielding reactions really shows the metabolic diversity of bacteria.

Microbial Ecology 1, Larry L. Barton, Diana E. Northup -

The book is well-illustrated. The figures and tables are abundant and appropriate. I did experience some frustration with lack of information in figure legends. The information is not always in the text, like Fig.

Google toucan and symbiotic relationships and it comes up with no relationship, although if you dig deeper you learn toucans disperse seeds of particular tropical trees.

And how many people know a diving bug as distinct from a diving beetle? And yes, those are cavefish in Fig I always think Figures and Tables and their legends should be capable of standing alone. Color plates are mostly useful and interesting, although some do not really benefit from being in color, like 7. It would also be useful to repeat figure legends in the color plates to avoid a lot of flipping pages. Fig 5. I like the organization and scope of the topics covered in the thirteen chapters of the book.

Chapter 5 The How of Microbial Ecology Studies gives just enough information on methods to enhance understanding of topics that apply these methods, but is not overwhelming. It would have been good to end with a summary chapter or end note that looks ahead at some of the big movements and challenges in microbial ecology as the book does briefly at the end of Chapter 1.

1st Edition

Some information about the authors would have been interesting. The authors are both microbiologists at the University of New Mexico. Barton has studied the energetics of sulfate reducing bacteria, metal metabolism in bacteria, and iron uptake in plant-microbe systems. He is an author of many books and papers on these topics. Northup is a geomicrobiologist specializing in the study of microbes in caves, although she has cave crickets in her background, too.

Microbial Ecology

Overall Microbial Ecology by Barton and Northup meets its objectives of providing a useful introduction for upper level and graduate students to a very complex and fascinating field of study. It is also a useful reference for anyone interested in these topics or with a professional interest in microbes in the environment. Microbial Ecology will intrigue and inspire the next generation of microbial ecologists.

This book Microbes are the very foundation of life. This book sends an important message. Great condition when I got it! Thank you! See all 3 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers. It emphasizes on study tools, microbial taxonomy and the fundamentals of microbial activities and interactions within their communities and environment as well as on the related food web dynamics and biogeochemical cycling.

The work exceeds the traditional domain of microbial ecology by revisiting the evolution of cellular prokaryotes and eukaryotes and stressing the general principles of ecology. The overview of the topics, authored by more than 80 specialists, is one of the broadest in the field of environmental microbiology.
