    This book focuses on microbial biofilms and their potential technological applications for sustainable development. It covers recent advances in biofilm technologies for contaminant remediation coupled to recovery of resources and serves as a complete reference on the science and technology behind biofilm mediated bioremediation and wastewater. He received his BSc from the University of Sydney and an MS and a PhD from Cornell University. A distinguished writer in the sciences, he has written one book, 24 reviews, and 76 original research papers. He has also served as Editor-in-Chief for five publications in the Wiley Advances in Microbial Ecology Series.

    Recently, the use of microbial islands or microbial biofilms for the treatment of polluted sites has attracted greater interest in research and development. Biofilm-mediated remediation is a competent method for planktonic microbes because cells of biofilm are more likely to adapt and survive under adverse conditions (Johnsen et al., Author: Anjney Sharma, Hena Jamali, Anukool Vaishnav, Balendu Shekhar Giri, Alok Kumar Srivastava. Specifically, Microbial Biofilms provides state-of-the-art research in the field of bacterial and fungal biofilms, detailed descriptions of the in vitro and in vivo models available to evaluate microbial biofilms, and information on future areas of research and their translational and clinical applications.\"--Pub. desc.\/span>\"@ en\/a.

Author: Mahmoud Ghannoum. Microbial biofilms is an attractive field as these play very important role in different sectors including environmental, industrial, and medicine.

Microbial biofilms have been focused on health and industrial sectors only, but now the role of the biofilms is greatly gaining attention in the field of agriculture for sustainable agriculture. The study of biofilm biology has virtually exploded in recent years, and Microbial Biofilms avails the reader a comprehensive introduction to this exciting and developing field.

Combining cutting-edge research with valuable historical perspective, this new volume will be of key importance to environmental microbiologists, medical and clinical microbiologists, geologists, biomedical.

“Biofilms influence human health and agriculture, and sustain diverse ecosystems. This second edition of Microbial Biofilms provides a masterful overview of critical topics central to fungal and bacterial biofilms by celebrated experts in the field.

It is a must read for any professional seeking basic or advanced knowledge of microbial. Under the expert guidance of the editor, respected leaders in their fields present detailed reviews of various aspects of biofilms with a focus on mechanisms of biofilm formation, techniques to study microbial biofilms and applications of biofilms.

The book is topical and up-to-date in terms of content and developments in the field. Our high level biofilms books bring together expert international authors under the skilled editorship of leading scientists to produce state-of-the-art compendiums of current research.

Aimed at the research scientist, graduate student, medical reseacher and other professionals, these books are highly recommended for all biofilms laboratories. Microbial Biofilms: Omics Biology, Antimicrobials and Clinical Implications is a comprehensive survey of microbial biofilms and their role in human health and disease with contributions from world renowned experts in molecular microbiology, proteomics, genomics, metabolomics and infectious diseases.

The book is intended to serve as a guide for students, Cited by: 1. These biofilms occur on both inert and living systems, making them important to a wide range of scientific disciplines.

This book first provides an analysis of the chemical, ecological and physical processes involved with the development of biofilms and their interactions with surfaces. The next section deals with biofilms on non-living surfaces.

Microbial Biofilms provides an overview of the formation, structure/architecture, cell-to-cell interactions, and dispersal of fungal and bacterial biofilms. The target audience is biofilm researchers, but this second edition of the book should also be useful for healthcare practitioners seeking a better understanding of microbial biofilms in.
