    This book discusses microbial diversity in various habitats and environments, its role in ecosystem maintenance, and its potential applications (e.g. biofertilizers, biocatalysts, antibiotics, other bioactive compounds, exopolysaccharides etc.). The field of environmental microbiology addresses one of the world’s most important areas of scientific research: the roles that microbes play in all planetary environments. The Manual of Environmental Microbiology is the only book to offer a comprehensive analysis of these critical environments. Thoroughly updated and revised, this third edition assembles in a single volume the most.

    In the second part of the book the use of biofilms in water quality is comprehensively covered. Chapters discuss biofilms in water quality, environmental risk assessment, monitoring and ecotoxicological approaches. Further topics include biofilm development in sewage pipes and the potential for microbial transformations in these systems. Microbes are critical components of aquatic ecosystems, underpinning the provision of multiple ecosystem services (Azam and Malfatti ; Falkowski et al. ).Their communities, comprised of bacteria, archaea, microbial eukaryotes and viruses, represent nearly unfathomable levels of aquatic biodiversity (Thompson et al. ).A grand challenge facing the field of aquatic microbiology is our Cited by: 1.

Organic matter in aquatic environments consists mostly of large compounds which cannot be taken up and utilized directly by microbial cells.

Prior to incorporation, polymeric materials undergo degradation by cell-bound and extracellular enzymes produced by these microbes; in fact, such enzymatic mobilization and transformation is the key process which regulates the turnover of organic as well.

In aquatic systems, the importance of microbial extracellular enzymes to the mobilization, transformation, and turnover of organic and inorganic compounds in aquatic environments has been proved.

Data on microbial distributions and diversity are accumulating rapidly, and advances in molecular biology are providing new tools that are applicable to extracellular enzyme studies.

In particular, proteomic approaches can be used to identify the extracellular enzymes that link genomic information with Cited by:   2. Discovering Enzymes. Nature provides a vast amount of microbial enzyme resources.

Our ability to tap into such immense biodiversity depends on the tools available to expand the search for new enzymes by (i) metagenome screening [6,7,8,9,10]); (ii) genome mining in more than 2, sequenced microbial genomes [11,12,13,14]; and (iii) exploring the diversity of extremophiles [15,16]).Cited by: nents of the biological ecosystem in aquatic environments.
