This new textbook on bacterial physiology is aimed at senior level students pursuing a one-semester course in the biology or microbiology curriculum. The text takes a balanced view of prokaryotic physiology, discussing both bioenergetics and bacterial metabolism in a way that establishes general principles and concepts and emphasizes throughout the information gained from model systems. The book also covers some experimental design issues, giving students an appreciation of the practical aspects and consequences of bacterial metabolism. It also stimulates students' interests in future developments in the field by including discussions by five world-famous bacterial physiologists about future developments in the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book of Larry L. Barton represents a successful review . . provides an exhaustive overview of the scientific information necessary for understanding the physiology . . The perspectives of six world-famous bacterial physiologists . stimulate students' discussion leading them toward the integrative approach of the comparative physiology. As stated by the author, the information presented in the book is intended to build on a background that students receive from introductory courses of microbiology, cell biology, genetics and biochemistry." (Diego Mora, Annals of Microbiology, Vol. 55 (3), 2005)
