About the Authors
  • The sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) are a large group of anaerobic organisms that play an important role in many biogeochemical processes. Not only are they of early origins in the development of the biosphere, but their mechanisms of energy metabolism shed light on the limits of life processes in the absence of oxygen. They are widely distributed in nature, and are regular components of engineered systems including, for example, petroleum reservoirs and oil production facilities. SRB are currently subject to extensive genomic studies, which are yielding fresh understanding of their basic biochemical mechanisms, and aiding in the development of novel techniques for the analyses of their environmental roles. This volume provides a timely update on these important microorganisms, from basic science to applications, and will therefore serve as a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in the fields of microbial ecology, microbial physiology, bioengineering, biogeochemistry and related areas of environmental science.

    • Covers all of the important facets of topical knowledge with respect to sulphate-reducing bacteria, from basic biochemistry to applications
    • Places the environmental importance of these micro-organisms in the context of their biochemistry
    • Includes chapters focusing on molecular biology, describing the relevant genomics and proteomics

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'It is an essential reference for microbiologists and global ecosystem researchers, and is recommended as a priority purchase for libraries, and by individuals whose work relates to SRB. The quality of the science and presentation is excellent, and a joy to read.' Ann Wood, King's College London
