This latest ebook, Microbial Ecology of the Oceans 3rd edition features new topics, as well as different approaches to subjects dealt with in previous editions. The PDF ebook starts out with a general introduction to the changes in the field, as well as looking at the prospects for the coming years. Chapters cover diversity,ecology, and function of microbes, and of microbial genes in the ocean. The biology and ecology of some model organisms, and how we can model the whole of the marine microbes, are dealt with, and some of the trophic roles that have changed in the last years are discussed. Finally, the role of microbes in the oceanic P cycle are presented.
Microbial Ecology of the Oceans 3e pdf offers chapters on The Evolution of Microbial Ecology of the Ocean; Marine Microbial Diversity as Seen by High Throughput Sequencing; Ecological Significance of Microbial Trophic Mixing in the Oligotrophic Ocean; Marine Microbes and Nonliving Organic Matter; Advances in Microbial Ecology from Model Marine Bacteria; Ecological Genomics of Marine Viruses;Metatranscritomics and Metaproteomics; Microbial Ecology and Biogeochemistry of Oxygen-Deficient Water Columns; The Ocean’s Microscale; Microbial Physiological Ecology of The Marine Phosphorus Cycle; Phytoplankton Functional Types; and more.
