This new volume presents state-of-the-art research on the biology of vibrios, examining the impact of innovative molecular and genomic approaches on the traditional disciplines in the field. The serves as a valuable reference to bacterial taxonomists, microbial ecologists, and health management professionals, as well as to researchers, lecturers, and students of marine biology and aquaculture.

Written by international experts, the book provides a cutting-edge analysis of the four main fields of study: biodiversity, ecology and its applications, post-genomics, and disease and epidemiology. The offers significant coverage of new subject areas and examines the detection, characterization, and identification tools that have been developed to facilitate the rapid screening of vibrio strains. Proposed new guidelines and paradigms for the different branches of vibrio research are explored and developments in the field are considered, including the increasingly significant discipline of marine biotechnology and its relationship to the study of vibrios.
