Subsurface Microbiology and Biogeochemistry
Edited by Fredrickson, James K.; Fletcher, Madilyn
John Wiley & Sons
Recent advances in technology and methodology have enabled the many advances in our
understanding of subsurface microbial processes. Researchers are now able to explore
relationships between microbial physiology, taxonomy, and genetics, and the environment
of these microorganisms. The discovery of these subsurface microorganisms has created a
multitude of opportunities for industrial, commercial, and medical applications.
