Sheds new light on the microbial ecology and physiology of the Earth’s polar regions.

Examines the microbial investigations during the International Polar Year of 2008 focusing on the Arctic and Antarctic, along with earlier investigations on critical environmental issues such as climate change, ozone depletion, and elemental cycling.

  • Offers a survey of what is known and unknown about the microbial inhabitants of polar environments, addresses the adaptations and physiology of cold-adapted microorganisms, and explores the ecological role that polar microbial communities play in biogeochemical cycling.
  • Presents the challenges that polar and subpolar microorganisms face and describes the lowest temperatures in which microbial life can exist―and the prospects for life on other planets.
  • Recommended for a general microbiology audience as well as for scientists and students in all areas of biology and geomicrobiology.

Review:

“An exciting introduction to the rapidly emerging field of cold biosphere microbiology, this book provides a compelling overview of how microbial life survives and even thrives in the coldest regions of our planet, and the implications for potential life on other icy worlds.” Warwick F. Vincent, Director, Centre for Northern Studies (CEN: Centre d'Etudes Nordiques), Professor & Canada Research Chair, Dept. de Biologie, Laval University

Book Description Wiley John & Sons Jun 2012, 2012. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - This edited volume on Arctic, Antarctic and sub-polar microbiology is designed to introduce this fascinating field to a wide range of microbiologists and environmental scientists. Polar microbiology is a fast-growing field that can tell us much about the fundamentals of life on earth and the microbial contributions and consequences to such important global environmental issues as warming earth, ozone depletion, and elemental cycling. Polar microbial communities are considered important analogues for astrobiology investigations looking for life on other very cold solar system bodies. 416 pp. Englisch.
