Summary

"This monograph, written by 49 authors... will be... a useful introduction and companion for students and scientists studying the rhizosphere and its co-existing microorganisms... it can [also] be recommended for botanists, gardeners and foresters." -Biotechnology JournalHere, an extremely experienced team of authors from five different continents provides a timely review of progress in the use and exploitation of soil bacteria to improve crop and plant growth. They present novel ideas on how to grow better, more successful crops, in an environmentally sound way, making this invaluable reading for those working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological and agricultural industries.
