قراءات إضافية

Microbiology is such a vibrant area of research that any book that aims to be current is certain to miss important findings within months of publication. Academic journals are the best source of current information and the following periodicals offer reviews of ongoing microbiological research: Annual Review of Microbiology, Clinical Microbiology Reviews, Current Opinion in Microbiology, Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology, FEMS Microbiology Letters, FEMS Microbiology Reviews, Frontiers in Microbiology, Fungal Biology Reviews, Letters in Applied Microbiology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews, Microbiology Today, Nature Reviews Microbiology, and Trends in Microbiology.

الفصل الأول: التنوع الميكروبي

  • There are several introductory textbooks on microbiology. M. T. Madigan, J. M. Martinko, D. Stahl, and D. P. Clark, Brock Biology of Microorganisms, 13th edition (San Francisco: Benjamin Cummins, 2010) is among the best, providing a wealth of information supported with excellent illustrations. It is particularly strong on the complicated topic of microbial metabolism. This book, like most microbiology texts, concentrates on prokaryotes and viruses. One of my previous books provides a contemporary view of biodiversity with emphasis on eukaryotic microbes: N. P. Money, The Amoeba in the Room: Lives of the Microbes (Oxford University Press, 2014). Photosynthetic eukaryotic microorganisms, or algae, are introduced in greater detail in L. Barsanti and P. Gualtieri, Algae: Anatomy, Biochemistry, and Biotechnology, 2nd edition (Boca Raton, Fla.: CRC Press, 2014). The following website is a useful supplement to these books because it presents a clickable evolutionary tree that directs readers to details on individual groups of microorganisms: “http://www.tolweb.org/tree/phylogeny.html”.
