About this book

This book is about the microbial species that inhabit the human body, and the consequences of the intimate relationships that we share with them. It is intended that the book will provide an introduction to the normal microflora for those studying disciplines within the health sciences, and for those in the food industry where interest in the microbiology of the digestive tract, especially with respect to lactic acid bacteria, is topical.

Reviews

Gerald Tannock is to be commended for putting together this concise book on the normal microflora. The book should be of interest to a wide variety of veterinary and medical students, as well as to graduate students and the research community interested in nutrition, biochemistry, physiology, immunology and infectious diseases - Trends in Microbiology; Tannock's book is suitable as a general work for readers interested in an overview of the human microbial flora. A useful addition to libraries. - Choice; Chapter titles such as `More than a smell: the complexity of the normal microflora' should be sufficient to tempt anyone even with only a passing interest in this subject to read this book, and they will not be disappointed. This [is a] very readable book. SGM Quarterly; Considering that there is no other up-to-date survey of the subject, this small book is a must for all scientists professionally dealing with human microflora or interested in microbial ecology of animals ... it is also a useful reference for physicians or microbiology teachers, and is recommended as bedside reading for anyone fascinated by our intimate interaction with a bunch of microbes that easily outnumber the cells of our body by order of magnitude. - Microbiology Europe; The writing is lively. The author has tried to produce a readable book and he has by and large succeeded...this book can be thoroughly recommended to undergraduates; they will enjoy it and its lessons will stand them in good stead. - Letters in Applied Microbiology
