From the reviews:
"Bacterial Physiology is an ambitious volume with contributions by 28 world experts ... . This monograph has collected many recent findings in the field and includes such topics as subcellular organization and function; regulation and expression of the genome, and cellular interaction with the environment via protein synthesis and secretion; intracellular signaling; and cellular adaptation. ... will undoubtedly serve as a valuable reference for researchers in prokaryotic physiology and biotechnology. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty." (J. L. Ninnemann, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008)
"This book presents some of the recent advances in bacterial physiology that have been made by the use of molecular microbiology. ... a valuable addition to the available literature on current bacterial physiology. At the end of each chapter there are appropriate references to guide those desiring more in depth infoimation on the various topics. ... a good guide for those wanting to investigate the topics in more detail. I enjoyed reading ... and would recommend it to researchers in the field of microbial physiology." (Diane McDougald, Microbe Magazine, December, 2008)
"This is definitely an advanced text relating to molecular aspects of bacterial physiology. ... Essentially there are interesting and clear up-to-date reviews that are well-referenced. ... It provides a solid basis for all researchers and PhD students in the area as well as in depth studies by final-year undergraduates." (Mike Larkin, Microbiology Today, February, 2009)
