Environmental microbiology is the study of mirobial fate and activity in the air, water, and soil and the resulting impact on human health and welfare. This study encompasses a variety of areas including microbial ecology, molecular genetics, and environmental science. This book offers a comprehensive discussion of this field as a discipline which has grown in recent years to include practical issues such as bioremediation, waterborne pathogens, microbial risk assessment, and environmental biotechnology. * Fully revised with eight new chapters * New chapters include ecology, urban environmental microbiology, and chapters specific to aquatic and extreme environments * Latest methodologies presented with emphasis on phytsiological methods * Instructor website includes lecture notes, questions, projects and activities, and downloadable figures

Ian L. Pepper is currently the Chair of the Undergraduate Program in Environmental Sciences at the University of Arizona. He was recently named to Who's Who in America for the second year in a row, and in 1994 earned the Researcher of the Year Award in the College of Agriculture at the University of Arizona. In 1994 he was also named as a fellow to the American Society of Agronomy, and he became the Chair of the Soil Biology and Biohemistry Division of the Soil Science Society of America. Pepper is also a Fellow of the American Society of Microbiology, and has been a member of the Editorial Board of Applied and Environmental Microbiology for the past nine years. Pepper has also been the author or co-author of numerous published journal articles. Dr. Gerba has 30 years experience in the area of wastewater and waste recycling in agriculture. He has been involved in numerous projects on use of soil aquifer treatment for reuse of domestic wastewater for crop production, composting of domestic solid waste, use of wastewater for fish and shellfish aquiculture, surface water pollution and control from animal feeding operations, reuse of sewage sludge on farm land, and use of wetlands for recycling of animal waste. His expertise is in the area of pathogen fate and removal by treatment processes and risk assessment. He has served on numerous local, state, and federal committees and expert workshops for the development of standards and guidelines for the treatment and recycling of wastes to minimize environmental impacts. He was a member of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agencys Science Advisory Board for 8 years. He has organized and participated in workshops on food and water safety throughout the U.S. and Latin America. He has co-authored nine workshop training manuals.
