Available as an exclusively e product with a limited print run, ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MICROBIOLOGY, Third Edition is a comprehensive survey of microbiology, edited by world class researchers. Each article is written by an expert in that specific domain and includes a glossary, list of abbreviations, defining statement, introduction, further reading and cross-references to other related encyclopedia articles. Written at a level suitable for university undergraduates, the breadth and depth of coverage will appeal beyond undergraduates to professionals and academics in related fields. Provides comprehensive coverage of microbiology; 16 separate areas of microbiology are covered for breadth and depth of content. It is authored and edited by world class researchers in microbiology. Uses figures, tables, and colour illustrations, and photographs extensively. The language is accessible for undergraduates while the depth is appropriate for scientists. A glossary of key terms is included for easy reference.
