Summary This timely reference/text integrates the principles of soil microbiology with novel insights into the physiology and activity of soil microbiota obtained by using the latest modern molecular analyses - investigating relationships between microbial communities, community structures, and function. Containing over 2950 references, tables, drawings, and photographs, this complete resource is an indispensable reference for soil and environmental microbiologists and biotechnologists, microbial ecologists, plant and soil virologists, plant pathologists, agronomists, soil scientists, agrobiologists, and researchers in phytopathology and geobiochemistry, and an excellent text for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in soil microbiology.
