One of the most needed PDF ebooks; Handbook of Methods in Aquatic Microbial Ecology is the first comprehensive compilation of 85 fundamental methods in modern aquatic microbial ecology. Each method is presented in a detailed; step-by-step format that allows readers and students to adopt new methods with very little difficulty. The methods represent the state of the art; and many have become standard procedures in microbial research and environmental assessment. The ebook also presents practical advice on how to apply the methods. It will be an indispensable reference for marine and freshwater research laboratories; environmental assessment laboratories; and industrial research labs concerned with microbial measurements in water.
