This book focuses on the processes related to global carbon cycling, including the flux of carbon and the energy through marine ecosystems, nitrogen fixing, and iron uptake by marine microbes. In addition, it studies the role of viruses in determining species diversity of marine microbes, the controls of bacterial growth rates and production, viability of marine bacteria, marine symbiosis, and thermal vents as the source of marine hyperthermophiles.
