The field of environmental microbiology addresses one of the world’s most important areas of scientific research: the roles that microbes play in all planetary environments. The Manual of Environmental Microbiology, Fourth Edition , provides a comprehensive analysis of these critical environments. Thoroughly updated and revised, the manual is the definitive reference for information on microbes in air, water, and soil and their impact on human health and welfare.

Written in accessible, clear prose, the manual covers four areas: general methodologies, environmental public health microbiology, microbial ecology, and biodegradation and biotransformation. This wealth of information is divided into 18 sections each containing chapters written by expert authors.

"...this edition and the previous editions have been definitive references for methodologies pertinent to environmental media (water, air, and food sources of microorganisms)."

-- J. Thomas Pierce, MBBS PhD (Navy Environmental Health Center) Doody's Review - previous edition



This will likely be used as often by biosafety professionals as by those who teach or otherwise work with environmental organisms in research, production, and teaching.
