The study of microbe-metal interactions is a burgeoning research area within environmental biogeochemistry. It has led to many major innovations and discoveries, including the development of microbial fuel cells, pili that function as “nanowires,“ and new, enhanced approaches to bioremediation. This publication, dedicated to the memory of geomicrobiology pioneer Terry Beveridge, reviews the current state of the science in the field. In addition, it examines emerging developments and applications and forecasts future research directions.

is divided into three sections: Environments, Processes, and New Technologies. Readers will find a broad range of current topics and approaches in microbe-metal research, including microbial fuel cells, unique microbial physiology, genomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics. The book offers chapters to introduce novices to the field as well as chapters to bring advanced investigators fully up to date with the latest state-of-the-science findings and applications.

All the chapters have been authored by recognized leaders and innovators in the field. Their contributions are based on a thorough review of the current literature and their own first-hand research experience, making the book an ideal reference for investigators interested in the microbial metabolism of metals and metalloids. The book is also recommended as a text for graduate courses in microbial physiology, microbial ecology, and applied and environmental microbiology.
