Using contributions by international researchers, this book analyses the molecular methods used for studying microorganisms that occur in the soil or that are associated with plants, at the community, population, taxonomic and functional group levels. By providing a critical and comparative basis upon which an informed choice of technique can be made, this book enpowers a prospective researcher to select a method that is most appropriate for their requirements.

Of interest to soil and plant microbiologists and ecologists.
