about

Microbial systems in extreme environments and in the deep biosphere may be analogous to potential life on other planetary bodies and hence may be used to investigate the possibilities of extraterrestrial life. This book examines the mode and nature of links between geological processes and microbial activities and their significance for the origin and evolution of life on the Earth and possibly on other planets. This is a truly interdisciplinary science with societal relevance.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This compilation of review papers authored by prominent researchers in this field is the result of a Symposium held at the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting in 2006. It is a contemporary, provocative, and very aesthetic manuscript covering a wide range of topics and accompanied by an extraordinary number of high-quality colored figures. . The book is generally well written . . Undoubtedly, this book should be very useful to researchers interested in the field of turbulence." (Andrzej Icha, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 167, 2010)
