Journals highlights

Polar and Alpine Microbiology FEMS Microbiology Ecology - Virtual Special Issue on Polar and Alpine Microbiology
Most of the Earth's biosphere is characterized by low temperatures (5 °C). It is, then, not surprising that cold-adapted microorganisms are widespread in nature and include representatives of all three microbial domains. There is thus considerable interest in understanding the adaptation, activity and survival of microorganisms in cold environments, as well as their ecological interactions. This Virtual Special Issue includes selections of papers from the last 10 years in this key area READ MORE

Microbial EcologyMicrobial Ecology
Larry L. Barton, Diana E. Northup

Microbial Ecology presents a broad overview of microbial ecology while providing numerous special features to assist students, teachers, and the professional reader.


Handbook of Molecular Microbial EcologyHandbook of Molecular Microbial Ecology, Two Volume Set
Frans J. de Bruijn

This is the first comprehensive treatise covering the various -omics in a large variety of habitats, which could not previously have been analysed without metagenomic methodology.


Studies in Viral Ecology, Two Volume Set Studies in Viral Ecology, Two Volume Set
Christon J. Hurst

This book explains the ecology of viruses by examining their interactive dynamics with their hosting species (this 2-volume set covers animals as well as microbes and plants), including the types of transmission cycles that viruses have evolved encompassing principal and alternate hosts, vehicles and vectoring species.
