Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

They exhibit all the metabolic sequences found in other life forms and, as well,
possess metabolic sequences that are uniquely bacterial. Bacteria and other
microorganisms use a wide variety of chemical compounds as energy sources.
The ability of bacteria to oxidize a wide spectrum of compounds for energy
reflects their ability to channel metabolites from unusual substances into the
central metabolic pathways. The central metabolic pathways are those pathways
A means for continuously regenerating these from the reduced forms must exist
in order for the central metabolic pathways of dissimilation to continue.
Microorganisms do this either by fermentation or by respiration. Fermentation is a
No attempt is made to provide a comprehensive catalogue of metabolic reactions
requiring energy. By intent as well as by the demands of space limitation, only
some important energy-requiring processes will be introduced to illustrate how ...
Once cellular infection has been accomplished, however, viruses become highly
active and subvert the normal metabolic activity of the cell to produce new virus
particles. Following attachment to and penetration of a new host cell, all viruses ...
