Microbes: Health and Environment highlights the interrelatedness of microbes with life and environment. It stresses that microbes have a beneficial impact on human life and environment. It covers the various aspects of microbes such as molecular biology, interrelationships, microbial intervention in our environment, microbial biotechnology, genetics, their immunology, biochemistry, economic importance, interaction with medicinal plants, human beings, industrial relevance, influence on our health and so on. It is an asset for enterprising students, teachers and scientists.

  • Containing 17 research papers and review articles contributed by 42 eminent scientists, the book presents information on impact of microbes on our health and environment.
  • The book emphasizes the need for conservation of the medicinally important microbial plants, for the benefit of academicians and industrialists.
  • Also covered are: microbial associations; symbiotic relationships; use as bio-fertilizers, pigments, pharmaceuticals and in bioremediation; role in soil ecosystem and so on.
  • Covers the importance of Fungus protoplasts, which serve as a potent tool for fungal biotechnology research.
