Summary

Summary

The Dictionary of Environmental Microbiology not only defines terms used in environmental microbiology but also includes terms associated with molecular biology, historical figures in the field, and microorganisms of significance. These entries not only provide information that will assist in the study of environmental microbiology, but will also serve as a resource for nonscientists.

Choice Review

Environmental microbiology studies a wide range of microorganisms in a variety of environmental settings. Stetzenbach and Yates cover all the relevant terminology used in this diverse subject, defining terms associated with molecular biology, current techniques, biochemical pathways, historical figures in the field, and microorganisms of significance. Scientific names of organisms are italicized and cross-references are underlined. Acronyms are cross-referenced to the complete entry. The entries are pointed and well written, and use figures where appropriate. For scientists and students in environmental microbiology, but also a resource for nonscientists. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. All libraries. M. E. Lenczewski Northern Illinois University
