Microbiology: Alternate Edition with Diseases by Body System / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
Microbiology: Alternate Edition with Diseases by Body Systems retains the same hallmark art program and clear writing style that have made Robert Bauman�s Microbiology such a success, while offering a new body-systems organization for the "disease chapters" (Chapters 19-24). Filled with interesting vignettes and cutting-edge research, Bauman's text brings the wonders of microbiology alive while providing a solid, comprehensive introduction to the field. History and Scope of Microbiology, The Chemistry of Microbiology, Cell Structure and Function, Microscopy, Staining, and Classification, Microbial Metabolism, Microbial Nutrition and Growth, Microbial Genetics, Biotechnology and Recombinant DNA, Controlling Microbial Growth in the Environment, Controlling Microbial Growth in the Body: Antimicrobial Drugs, Characterizing and Classifying Prokaryotes, Characterizing and Classifying Eukaryotes, Characterizing and Classifying Viruses, Viroids, and Prions, Infection, Disease, and Epidemiology, Natural and Non-specific Resistance, Specific Defense: The Immune Response, Immunization and Diagnostic Testing, Immune Deficiencies and Hypersensitivities, Microbial Diseases of the Skin, Microbial Diseases of the Nervous System, Microbial Cardiovascular and Systemic Diseases, Microbial Diseases of the Respiratory System, Microbial Diseases of the Digestive System, Microbial Diseases of the Urinary and Reproductive Systems, Applied and Environmental Microbiology. For all readers interested in learning Microbiology with a diseases by body systems approach.
About the Author
Robert Bauman is a professor of biology and chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences at Amarillo College in Amarillo, Texas. He teaches microbiology and human anatomy and physiology. He received an M.A. degree in botany from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Ph.D. in biology from Stanford University.
His research interests have included the morphology and ecology of freshwater algae, the cell biology of marine algae (particularly the deposition of cell walls and intercellular communication), and environmentally triggered chromogenesis in butterflies. He is a member of the American Society of Microbiology (ASM), Texas Community College Teacher's Association (TCCTA), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and The Lepidopterist's Society. When he is not writing books, he enjoys spending time with his family: gardening, hiking, camping, playing games (with lots of laughter), and reading classics out loud by a crackling fire.
