Food-Borne Microbes: Shaping the Host Ecosystem Editors: Lee-Ann Jaykus, Hua H. Wang, and Larry S. Schlesinger

With contributions from experts in environmental, food, oral, medical, and veterinary microbiology, this book takes an innovative and interdisciplinary approach that sheds new light on microbial communities and their interactions within and between different environments, with particular emphasis on food systems. Food-Borne Microbes underscores the central role played by food and food-borne microbes in host ecosystem development by connecting complex ecosystems from the environment to the host and linking them to the food carrier.

With subjects ranging from public health and biodefense to Salmonella and mad cow disease, this heavily updated volume brings together renowned researchers and practitioners who detail the latest scientific knowledge in food microbiology as well as public health-related concerns. The third edition provides professionals with practical, indispensable information on this wide-ranging and broad topic. This authoritative treatment is a significant reference book for professionals who conduct research, teach food microbiology courses, analyze food samples, conduct epidemiologic investigations, and craft food safety policies.
