A biofilm is a complex aggregation of microbes usually attached to a solid surface. Traditional studies of bacteria sometimes implied that microbes live as single organisms; it is now clear that in nature microbes usually live in co-operative groups attached to surfaces. This book, written by leading international scientists, presents an overview of the most recent and exciting new research into the mechanisms that underpin the biofilm mode of life. Essential reading for anyone interested in biofilms.
