Review: "Freshwater Microbiology presents a broad overview of the biodiversity and interactions of microorganisms within a wide range of freshwater environments including lakes, rivers, wetlands, snowfields, aquifers and various extreme situations. The book offers a novel perspective on aquatic systems in considering freshwater biology from a microbial viewpoint and including separate chapters on algae, bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa within a single volume. Both applied and theoretical aspects of freshwater biology are presented concisely with numerous case studies, figures and tables throughout the book." "Written by an author with many years teaching and research experience, Freshwater Microbiology will prove invaluable to students and researchers in the fields of freshwater biology, algology, microbiology, environmental biology and conservation ecology."--BOOK JACKET.
