Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This multi-authored volume addresses an intriguing . area of human microbiology. The individual chapters deal with microbiological and immunological changes associated with normal ageing processes in different body sites, including the mouth, gut and skin. . Overall, the quality of writing and production is generally good . . the main beneficiary's of readership would be senior undergraduate and postgraduate students." (George T. Macfarlane, Microbiology Today, July, 2009)"This book is one of the first attempts in introducing and discussing the role of microflora in relation to human aging. The book compiles 14 chapters covering a wide range of topics from the basic biology of aging to infections, immunity and the decomposition of the dead body. . This book can be a useful stepping stone to enter the highly complex world of microflora, which surely affects our health, survival and longevity." (Rupal Deva and Suresh I. S. Rattan, Biogerontology, Vol. 10, 2009)
