Bacteria has been written in a way that gives students easy access to the important key features of microbes. The book has been divided into twelve chapters, which cover all areas of microbiology, particularly the balance between fundamental of basic microbiology and applied microbiology. Careful attention has been given to updating of information in all aspect of the discipline. Many new summary tables have been developed and diagrams are kept to the simple outline draining that a student might produce under examination conditions.
