International contributors in polar microbiology and experts in the environmental impact of hydrocarbon contamination explore the bioremediation potential of microorganisms found in extremely cold environments. They report on the physiology, genetics, biochemistry, population structure, and bioremediation potential of these cold-adapted organisms and enzymes in chapters on areas such as archaeal and bacterial diversity in Antarctic ecosystems, the response of polar soil bacterial communities to fuel spills, and the possible role of bacteriophage-mediated horizontal gene transfer on microbial adaptation to environmental stressors in polar ecosystems. B&w images and photos are included. Bej teaches biology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
