Pseudomonasvolume 7 collects some of the most relevant and

emerging issues in the biology of these microorganisms, and a number of other

important issues that were not collected in the previous volumes.

The first six volumes of thePseudomonasseries covered the biology of

pseudomonads in a wide range of contexts, including the niches they inhabit,

the taxonomic relations among its members of this group, the molecular biology

of gene expression in different niches and under different environmental

conditions, the analysis of virulence in plants, animal and human pathogens, as

well as the determinants that make some of these strains of interesting for

biotechnological applications.

This seventh volume covers the following topics:

The history of the biology ofPseudomonas

The use ofPseudomonasas biological agents

New trends in the molecular biology of these microorganisms

Pseudomonasand the immune system of insects and animals

This book will be of use to researchers working on these bacteria,

particularly those studying medical aspects ofPseudomonas, and their use as a

means to control pathogens or to stimulate plant growth. This volume is

also interesting for those studying the physiology, genetics, molecular biology

ofPseudomonasand those using novel-omics approaches to understand

bacteria of the genusPseudomonas.
