Processes in Microbial Ecology discusses the major processes carried out by viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and other protists in freshwater, marine, and terrestrial ecosystems.

Written by one of the leading scientists in the field, the text focuses on biogeochemical processes, starting with primary production and the initial fixation of carbon into cellular biomass, before exploring how that carbon is degraded in both oxygen-rich (oxic) and oxygen-deficient (anoxic) environments.

The book neatly connects processes occurring at the micron scale to events happening at the global scale, including the carbon cycle and its connection to climate change issues.

A final chapter is devoted to symbiosis and other relationships between microbes and larger organisms.

Processes in Microbial Ecology is an ideal text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in microbial ecology and related fields.

"Kirchman's breadth of personal experience in many facets of microbial ecology is clear and he is at his best in describing these topics. There are few topics in microbial ecology that are not covered by the volume." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology
