Over the last decade, the study of soil microbiology has undergone significant changes. This book presents aspects of soil microbiology and various methodological developments in the field. Topics range from the fundamental to the applied and describe the use of novel advanced methods. Keeping in line with its predecessors, this text encompasses details of biotechnology, ecology, genetics, molecular biology, and physiology; and makes use of biochemical and biophysical approaches. Several new chapters include biocontrol and plant growth promotion; nitrogen fixing inoculants; heavy metals and microbes in soil; pathogens in soil; water deficits; and biosensors to monitor soil toxicity.
