About this book


From the Chapman & Hall Microbiology Series this unique resource offers specific experimental and practical applications of mathematical modeling in microbial ecology. The text presents a variety of systems, ranging from subcellular systems to ecosystems, and shows how to test whether the models provide a good representation of the system. The book also encourages further development and application of modeling to burgeoning problems associated with microbial ecology, such as the pollution and destruction of pesticides and herbicides.
