Download Bacteriophage Ecology: Population Growth, Evolution, and by Stephen T. Abedon PDF

By Stephen T. Abedon

Bacteriophages, or phages, are viruses that infect micro organism and are believed to be the main considerable and genetically various organisms on the earth. As such, their ecology is giant either in quantitative and qualitative phrases. Their abundance makes an realizing of phage ecology more and more suitable to bacterial environment ecology, bacterial genomics and bacterial pathology. Abedon offers the 1st textual content on phage ecology for nearly twenty years. Written by means of top specialists, synthesizing the 3 key techniques to learning phage ecology, particularly learning them in ordinary environments (in situ), experimentally within the lab, or theoretically utilizing mathematical or machine types. With powerful emphasis on microbial inhabitants biology and distilling state-of-the-art learn into uncomplicated rules, this e-book will supplement different at the moment to be had volumes. it's going to for this reason function a necessary source for graduate scholars and researchers, rather people with an curiosity in phage ecology and evolutionary biology.
