Summary

This extremely readable, well-illustrated, presentation covers a wide range of microorganisms and their activities. It presents photographs and data about organisms that are not normally found in laboratory manuals and often not found in textbooks. Readers learn the characteristics of various types of microorganisms, along with pertinent information about microorganism-caused disease (bacterial, fungal, protozoan, viral, helminthic).Updates and increases coverage of basic laboratory procedures and associated results, the domains of microbal life, immunology, and infectious diseases. Increased emphasis on the features of viruses and prions: discusses the use of selected agents of bioterrorism, and adds coverage on the SARS agent, Ebola and Marburg viruses, and the human metapneumovirus. Features new illustrations throughout that emphasize the variety of microorganisms and their activities, increasing the microbiology perspective.A laboratory supplement for students studying to be nurses, medical assistants, dental assistants, medical technologists. It may also be used in biology majors labs.

Author Biography

George Wistreich is Professor of Microbiology and former Chair of the Department of Life Sciences, East Los Angeles College, Monterey Park, California.
