Although it has been commonly believed that non-biological processes control the fate of metals in the environment, it is becoming increasingly apparent that microorganisms have a major impact on metal chemistry. This new book, the first in more than 10 years to examine environmental microbe-metal interactions, summarizes the current understanding of the interaction of microorganisms and metals in the environment. It offers the reader a comprehensive overview of the field and a basis for improved models of metal cycling.

makes clear the significance of these interactions and provides clues for areas of further investigation. It is valuable reading for scientists with an interest in environmental microbiology, microbial diversity and ecology, and geochemistry.
