Review of the Second Edition: “.... This encyclopedia is an all-encompassing reference to meet the needs of the diverse number of disciplines dealing with microorganisms, including public health and agricultural and industrial microbiology, to name a few. ..... Once the secret is out, this text should find itself on the office shelves of all professional microbiologists and in the library of every academic microbiology department throughout the world.”--William Michael Dunner, Jr., mPhD, Case Western University in CHOICE
