"Welcome! I am so glad you are here. I am very excited for you to try this book. I wrote it after years of frustration, teaching from books that didn't focus on the right things that my students needed. My students (and, I think, you) need a solid but not overwhelming introduction to microbiology and infectious diseases. I asked myself: What are the major concepts I want my students to remember five years from now? And then I worked backward from there, making sure everything pointed to the big picture. While this book has enough detail to give you context, there is not so much detail that you will lose sight of the major principles. Biological processes are described right next to the illustrations that illustrate them. The format is easier to read than most books, because there is only one column of text on a page and wider margins. The margins gave me space to add interesting illustrations and clinical content. A working nurse, Jennifer Lusk, brings her experience to life on the pages and shows you how this information will mat ter to you when you are working as a health care provider. We have interesting and up-to-the-moment Case Files, Medical Moments, Microbiome selections, and NCLEX ® questions in every chapter. My coauthor, Heidi Smith, has brought so much to the book and online material. I don't think you'll find a bet ter online set of learning tools anywhere. I really wanted this to be a different kind of book. I've started using it in my own classes and my students love it! Well, maybe they have to say that, but I hope you truly do enjoy it and find it to be a refreshing kind of science book"--

This book is a treatise on microbial ecology that covers traditional and cutting-edge issues in the ecology of microbes in the biosphere. 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.

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the microbiological fundamentals and biotechnological applications of methanotrophs: aerobic proteobacteria that can utilize methane as their sole carbon and energy source. It highlights methanotrophs’ pivotal role in the global carbon cycle, in which they remove methane generated geothermally and by methanogens. Readers will learn how methanotrophs have been employed as biocatalysts for mitigating methane gas and remediating halogenated hydrocarbons in soil and underground water. Recently, methane has also attracted considerable attention as a potential next-generation carbon feedstock for industrial biotechnology, because of its abundance and low price. Methanotrophs can be used as biocatalysts for the production of fuels, chemicals and biomaterials including methanobactin from methane under environmentally benign production conditions. Sharing these and other cutting-edge insights, the book offers a fascinating read for all scientists and students of microbiology and biotechnology.

Following up on the critical success of the first edition, this textbook presents a classroom-friendly adaptation that has been student tested for level and depth of coverage. This new edition offers a straightforward approach to learning the core principles without sacrificing depth, clarity, or rigor. It introduces the genetics and mechanisms important to specific issues in food microbiology. This textbook encourages today's students to acquire the understanding and skills necessary for practicing food safety in the future. The textbook has been completely updated based on student input and on new discoveries in food microbiology. Organized into five major sections, which can be taught in any order, this new edition adds important new details, including expanded coverage of food fermentations. Additionally, this student-friendly textbook employs attractive instructive material such as text boxes, case studies, chapter summaries, questions for critical thought, and a glossary. The first section, "Basics of Food Microbiology," cements foundational material, while the next four sections detail specific food-borne organisms and strategies for controlling them. Descriptions of outbreaks of food-related infections inject life into the coverage of pathogens.
