1 edition of The Prokaryotes found in the catalog.
The Prokaryotes is a comprehensive, multi-authored, peer reviewed reference work on Bacteria and Achaea. This fourth edition of The Prokaryotes is organized to cover all taxonomic diversity, using the family level to delineate chapters. Different from other resources, this new Springer product includes not only taxonomy, but also prokaryotic biology and technology of taxa in a broad context. Technological aspects highlight the usefulness of prokaryotes in processes and products, including biocontrol agents and as genetics tools. The content of the expanded fourth edition is divided into two parts: Part 1 contains review chapters dealing with the most important general concepts in molecular, applied and general prokaryote biology; Part 2 describes the known properties of specific taxonomic groups. Two completely new sections have been added to Part 1: bacterial communities and human bacteriology. The bacterial communities section reflects the growing realization that studies on pure cultures of bacteria have led to an incomplete picture of the microbial world for two fundamental reasons: the vast majority of bacteria in soil, water and associated with biological tissues are currently not culturable, and that an understanding of microbial ecology requires knowledge on how different bacterial species interact with each other in their natural environment. The new section on human microbiology deals with bacteria associated with healthy humans and bacterial pathogenesis. Each of the major human diseases caused by bacteria is reviewed, from identifying the pathogens by classical clinical and non-culturing techniques to the biochemical mechanisms of the disease process. The 4th edition of The Prokaryotes is the most complete resource on the biology of prokaryotes.

Prokaryotes were the first forms of life on Earth, and they existed for billions of years before plants and animals appeared. The Earth and its moon are thought to be about billion years old. This estimate is based on evidence from radiometric dating of meteorite material together with other substrate material from Earth and the moon. Taxonomy of Prokaryotes, edited by two leading experts in the field, presents the most appropriate up-to-date experimental approaches in the detail required for modern microbiological research. Focusing on the methods most useful for the microbiologist interested in this specialty, this Author: Elsevier Science.

Laurence A. Cole, in Biology of Life, Prokaryotic Life. Prokaryotes are a microscopic single-celled organism that has neither a distinct nucleus with a membrane nor other specialized organelles. Prokaryotes include the bacteria and archaea. Prokaryote life seemingly started just over 4 billion years ago, feeding off the early carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, steam, nitrogen, hydrogen.
The Prokaryotes The Prokaryotes book by far the most comprehensive treatise in microbiology available today. In summary, this is an impressive work of more than specialists that should be of great interest to all microbiologists. A very thorough index with extensive cross reference facilities the finding of the topics of interest for the eventual reader."5/5(1).
Written in accessible text using colorful illustrations, this book explains how cells are the basic unit of life for all living things. Given the opportunity to identify and understand each part of the cell and its specific function, students will be able to easily grasp the fundamentals of biology.
As the author of a number of science books for young adults, the author uses straightforward Reviews: 1. About this book. Introduction. The first edition of The Prokaryotes, published intook a bold step to become the most comprehensive and authoritative encyclopedic handbook on prokaryotes.
Another important step was taken with the second edition inwhen the chapters were organized on the basis of the molecular phylogeny as a rational. The revised Third Edition of The Prokaryotes, acclaimed as a classic reference in the field, offers new and updated articles by experts from around the world on taxa of relevance to medicine, ecology and industry.

coli have provided the model for subsequent investigations of transcription in eukaryotic cells. As reviewed in Chapter 3, mRNA was discovered first in E. coli. E. coli was also the first organism from which RNA polymerase was purified and studied.
The basic mechanisms by which transcription is regulated were likewise elucidated by Cited by: 3.Prokaryotes and the Nitrogen Cycle. Nitrogen is a very important element for life because it is part of proteins and nucleic acids.
It is a macronutrient, and in nature, it is recycled from organic compounds to ammonia, ammonium ions, nitrate, nitrite, and nitrogen gas by myriad processes, many of which are carried out only by prokaryotes.
