Example text

The soil solution is essentially a weak electrolyte composed of a variety of organic and inorganic cations and anions. Because the interface between cells and the soil solution is essentially ionic, even small changes in ionic composition and strength probably have a significant effect on the growth and activity of the microorganisms. Unfortunately, not enough is known about how the ionic composition of soil affects specific organisms to suggest how the ionic composition can be manipulated beneficially.

The second section is devoted to the composition and activity (gene expression) of soil microbial populations, as determined by molecular techniques. This new information is integrated with current knowledge on soil microbiology. These chapters are unique in that no other current soil microbiology volume has managed to cover all the different new developments. The final section addresses a series of applied aspects of soil microbiology. Here, basic microbial ecology in areas such as the ecology of plant pathogenesis, bioremediation of soil, perturbations by heavy metal pollution, and soil manipulation via plowing or manuring is discussed.
