Microbial Ecology of the Oceans
Edited by Kirchman, David L.
John Wiley & Sons
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
