Hardback 364 Pages
It is recognized that aeromonads form the dominant component of the eutrophic freshwater aerobic bacterial population and over the last ten years the many facets of the organisms have attracted much attention. This timely publication presents the latest developments in the biology of Aeromonas and draws on the expertise of an international team of contributors to provide an authoritative and enlightening account of the many species in this genus. Early chapters deal with the taxonomy, isolation and enumeration, and identification of aeromonads. The book goes on to describe subtyping methods for Aeromonas species, the ecology of mesophilic Aeromonas in the aquatic environment, human pathogens (diarrhoeal disease), Aeromonas species in disease of animals, fish pathogens, pathogenic mechanisms, toxins and the Aeromonas hydrophila group in food. This commendable reference source will be of value to all medical and veterinary microbiologists, public health scientists and microbial ecologists.
