The authors present a basic and accessible introduction to the world of microbiology. In three sections, this book provides both a foundation and overview of the subject. In the first section, 'Microbial Structure and Mode of Life', the structure and functioning of fungi, bacteria and viruses are discussed (with particular attention being paid to their description and discussion of their reproduction and nutrition). The second section, 'Handling Microbes' introduces the methods used to culture, control and study these organisms in the laboratory. The final section covers the 'Isolation, Classification and Identification of Microbes'. This book is essential reading for anyone becoming interested in this subject, whether it be 6th form students, their teachers, or undergraduates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This simple, affordable format should be popular ... It condenses a good range of bacteriology, micology and virology into a 234 page paperback, covering the core of introductory microbiology courses at most British universities ... a valuable book, with a useful glossary of definitions that students so often get wrong! It would be an excellent revision aid, or a text for those preparing for microbiology at university.' Liz Sockett, SGM Quarterly
'Introductory Microbiology in the latest in the excellent Studies in Biology series ... the authors cover admirably, a large amount of information in a short space.' Raymond Barclay, Journal of Biological Education
' ... this is an excellent introduction to the basics of microbiology.' Aslib Book Guide
