The Human Microbiota is an invaluable resource for microbiologists, microbial ecologists, physicians, infectious disease specialists, and anyone wishing to learn about the latest tools in molecular biology and what they reveal about this exciting, rapidly evolving field.Review:
“Overall, this book provides a concise overview of the human microbiota in and on different body sites, a bit too concise for me. It fulfils the intention to discuss many different body sites but in doing so neglects to get to the detailed description of the human microbiota, let alone to give a good overview of their role in health and disease.” (Beneficial Microbes, 1 March 2014)
“Having said that, I’m sure the book will be of interest to all those studying the effects of micro-organisms on the human body.” (Microbiology Today, 30 August 2013)
