"The Color Atlas of Medical Bacteriology is a compilation of exceptional four-color images of important bacteria in medical microbiology. Drawing on their own classroom and laboratory experiences, the authors have organized a collection of over 650 superb photographs, almost all of which are original to this volume and representative of clinically relevant organisms. This easy-to-use atlas present illustrations of the bacteria most frequently encountered in the clinical laboratory, including typical Gram stains, colony morphologies, and biochemical reactions. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, providing a contextual framework for the images, with the last chapter detailing some of the most common methods and biochemical reactions used in the identification of pathogenic bacteria. A representative sampling of certain bacteria with unique or interesting pictoria characteristics is presented, and terminology current to the discipline is used throughout. The organization of the atlas closely parallels that of the Manual of Clinical Microbiology, making it a perfect companion reference. Filling a void that most textbooks on the subject cannot, the Color Atlas of Medical Bacteriology is a valuable illustrative supplement for lectures and laboratory presentations."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE.
