Microbes--tiny unseen bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa--pervade every aspect of human society and of the natural world, from life-saving antibiotics to horrendous epidemics. Power Unseen portrays the many, diverse and often unexpected activities of microbes through a series of 75 vignettes, each focusing on one particular organism and its characteristic behavior. Illustrating microbial life in its astonishing diversity, this fascinating and entertaining book leaves the reader in no doubt that microbes, not macrobes, rule the world.
