Volume sixteen of Advances in Microbial Ecology has a tricky heritage. approximately midway via its of completion, Gwynfryn Jones needed to renounce as dealing with edi­ tor for healthiness purposes, and he requested me to take over. i would like to thank Gwyn for his committed paintings during this book sequence, and want him the entire most sensible for the longer term. After the swap in editorship, a few authors needed to be inspired on really brief discover to supply their chapters so that it will make visual appeal of this quantity attainable inside a cheap time period. still, i feel that the articles we current with this quantity signify an stress-free number of up to date con­ tributions to microbial ecology. In my very own realizing, microbial ecology com­ prises the elucidation of microbial actions in typical or semi traditional environ­ ments, together with body structure, biochemistry, inhabitants dynamics, and interactions with the entire biotic and abiotic environmental stipulations microbes come across. This includes experiences on unmarried organisms in outlined cultures in an ecological in keeping with­ spective, the research of microbial actions in complicated environments, in addition to the improvement of strategies for the interactions of microorganisms with the realm during which they dwell. final yet no longer least, microbial ecology isn't an unique technological know-how studied solely in foreign places untouched via human beings.
