Microbial Diversity in Hotspots provides an introduction to microbial diversity and microbes in different hotspots and threatened areas. The book gives insights on extremophiles, phyllosphere and rhizosphere, covers fungal diversity, conservation and microbial association, focuses on biodiversity acts and policies, and includes cases studies. Microbes explored are from the coldest to the hottest areas of the world. Although hotspots are zones with extremely high microbiology activities, the knowledge of microbial diversity from these areas is very limited, hence this is a welcome addition to existing resources.
- Provides an introduction to microbial biotechnology
- Addresses novel approaches to the study of microbial diversity in hotspots
- Provides the basics, along with advanced information on microbial diversity
- Discusses the techniques used to examine microbial diversity with their applications and respective pros and cons for sustainability
- Explores the importance of microbial genomes studies in commercial applications
Postgraduate students; Researchers; Professors in microbiology. Graduate students in applied microbiology and biotechnology
