Understanding Microbes

Although we can’t see them, microbes are the dominant form of life on earth, making up half the world’s biomass. This book explains their importance, not just in infectious diseases, but also in the natural environment, the production and preservation of food, the disposal of waste, and the production of many useful chemicals such as antibiotics.

It provides a valuable and accessible introduction to microbiology not just for students in a range of disciplines but also for the general reader who wants to find out more about the topic.
