About this book

This book provides comprehensive, authoritative descriptions of the microbes involved in cleaning up oil spills and degrading climate-altering hydrocarbons such as methane, and has detailed discussions about the taxonomy, ecology, genomics, physiology and global significance of these hydrocarbon-degrading microbes.

About the authors

Terry J. McGenity is a Professor at the University of Essex, UK. His Ph.D., investigating the microbial ecology of ancient salt deposits (University of Leicester), was followed by postdoctoral positions at the Japan Marine Science and Technology Centre (JAMSTEC, Yokosuka) and the Postgraduate Research Institute for Sedimentology (University of Reading). Terry’s overarching research interest is to understand how microbial communities function and interact to influence major biogeochemical processes. He worked as a postdoc with Ken Timmis at the University of Essex, where he was inspired to investigate microbial interactions with hydrocarbons at multiple scales, from communities to cells, and as both a source of food and stress. Terry has broad interests in microbial ecology and diversity, particularly with respect to carbon cycling (especially the second most abundantly produced hydrocarbon in the atmosphere, isoprene), and is driven to better understand how microbes cope with, or flourish, in hypersaline and poly-extreme environments.
