"It is written for the reader with a solid background in biology and would be wonderful supplemental reading at the graduate level, with helpful definition boxes throughout and outlined summaries at the end of every chapter. The book is a well-rounded discourse of the advanced topics in marine microbial ecology. The second edition is highly recommended for professionals and graduate students in this field." (Environ Earth Sci, 2011)

"Given the state of flux in the field, this volume is the closest one can get to a classic textbook, and will be a must for students and researchers, but also for anyone interested in comparing the current state of consensus in microbial ecology with the status quo in the adjoining fields of plankton, benthos, and fish ecology." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, September 2010)"I would strongly recommend it for library purchase and the reading list of advanced students in this field." (Microbiology Today, May 2009)

"This book and its predecessor are valuable, critical overviews of the state of marine microbial ecology. They are the best current analysis of a growing and important discipline." (Oceanography, December 2008)
