Variations in Autotrophic Life
"Variations in Autotrophic Life" is a textbook aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students of applied microbiology and biotechnology which elucidates the biochemistry of autotrophic bacteria. The book is intended as a reference source for established microbial physiologists, biochemists, environmental specialists and professionals in the area of applied microbiology. It discusses the biochemistry of facultative autotrophs, photosynthetic bacteria and chemilithotrophs, the comparative biochemistry of sulfate and sulpher respiring bacteria, the comparative metabolism of CO2 assimilation in autotraphs, and the energetics of autotrophic bacteria of the nitrogen, iron, and sulphur cycles.
