About the Authors
  • Geomicrobiology is the study of microbes and microbial processes and their role in driving environmental and geological processes at scales ranging from the nano, micron, to meter scale. This growing field has seen major advances in recent years, largely due to the development of new analytical tools and improvements to existing techniques, which allow us to better understand the complex interactions between microbes and their surroundings. In this comprehensive handbook, expert authors outline the state-of-the-art and emerging analytical techniques used in geomicrobiology. Readers are guided through each technique including background theory, sample preparation, standard methodology, data collection and analysis, best practices and common pitfalls, and examples of how and where the technique has been applied. The book provides a practical go-to reference for advanced students, researchers and professional scientists looking to employ techniques commonly used in geomicrobiology.

    • Provides the first comprehensive overview of the most important and emerging analytical techniques in geomicrobiology, to save readers having to scour the journal literature to find details on each technique
    • Case studies are used to guide readers through all stages of the techniques, from sample preparation to conducting experiments, interpreting results, detecting contamination or bad data, and overall best practices for each technique
    • Accompanied by a website written by the editors and authors, providing additional detailed information on various techniques mentioned in the book and updates on the latest technological developments

  • Editors

    Janice P. L. Kenney, MacEwan University, Edmonton
    Janice P. L. Kenney is an assistant professor at MacEwan University, Edmonton, and a member of the Geochemical Society. She is interested in how contaminants, such as radionuclides, are transported in the environment, and she employs techniques in geochemistry and geomicrobiology to better understand the fate of these elements.

    Harish Veeramani, Carleton University, Ottawa
    Harish Veeramani is a research facilitator at Carleton University, and previously worked as a lecturer in water engineering at the University of Glasgow. He specialises in applied environmental microbiology for the remediation of heavy metal contaminants including radionuclides.

    Daniel S. Alessi, University of Alberta
    Daniel S. Alessi is an Associate Professor and the Encana Chair in Water Resources at the University of Alberta. His research focuses on environmental geomicrobiology and geochemistry, and the role of microbes and minerals in controlling the transport and fate of metals in near-surface environments.
