It is clinically-relevant throughout and uses the theme of infection as its foundation. Microbiology is student-friendly: its text, figures, and electronic resources have been carefully designed to help students understand difficult concepts and keep them interested in the material. The Second Edition includes a robust instructor ancillary package that allows professors to easily incorporate the book's unique approach into their lectures. And in addition to the many free resources for students––including the E-Tutor, Bug Parade, Flashcards, and MicroMovies–– a new online homework platform, will be available for Spring 2016 courses. The homework platform will have a module for each chapter including tutorials, media assessments, and quizzes, and is accompanied by an instructor dashboard which displays data on student performance.

Microbial Food Safety

A Food Systems Approach
Author: Charlene Wolf-Hall,William Nganje
Publisher: CABI
ISBN: 1780644809
Category: Technology & Engineering
Page: 198
View: 6914
This interdisciplinary textbook provides the reader with vital information and comprehensive coverage of foodborne microbial pathogens of potential risk to human consumers. It includes human pathogens and toxins originating from plants, fungi and animal products and considers their origin, risk, prevention and control. From the perspectives of microorganisms and humans, the authors incorporate concepts from the social and economic sciences as well as microbiology, providing synergies to learn about complex food systems as a whole, and each stage that can present an opportunity to reduce risk of microbial contamination. Microbial Food Safety: A Food Systems Approach explains concepts through a food supply network model to show the interactions between how humans move food through the global food system and the impacts on microorganisms and risk levels of microbial food safety. Written by authors renowned in the field and with extensive teaching experience, this book is essential reading for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students of food microbiology, food safety and food science, in addition to professionals working in these areas.

Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9780849375712
Category: Science
Page: 176
View: 8528
From the slippery covering on rocks in a stream, to the clogging slime in a bathtub drain, biofilms are present in everyday life in a variety of forms. This seemingly harmless build-up also accounts for 80 percent of all microbial infections. With chapters authored by experienced contributors from academia and industry, Applied Biomedical Microbiology: A Biofilms Approach demonstrates effective ways to combat the health and economic havoc that biofilms are wreaking, while also tapping into their positive potential. Replete with Tables and Illustrations, Many in Color Under the editorial guidance of esteemed industrial microbiologist Dr. Daryl Paulson, this book presents an in-depth discussion of medically challenging biofilms. It provides a solid foundation in the basic microbiology of biofilms and then goes on to discuss the biofilms associated with medical devices, catheters, and dental unit water lines as well as those that impact cardiovascular medicine, the gastrointestinal system, periodontal disease, and chronic wounds. This informative work concludes with an exploratory chapter of the various methods used to investigate biofilms. Applied Biomedical Microbiology: A Biofilms Approach presents key information clearly and concisely – a useful guide for environmental, food, and water microbiologists as well as biochemists, pharmaceutical scientists, and product and biofilm engineers.

Page: 338
View: 4070
The Microbiology of Skin, Soft Tissue, Bone and Joint Infections: Volume 2 discusses modern approaches in diagnosis, treatment, and prophylaxis of skin, soft tissue, bone, and joint infections. The volume has been divided into three sections. The first section includes chapters on diagnosis, treatment, and prophylaxis of skin and soft tissue infections. It discusses antimicrobial and surgical treatment of wounds, diabetic foot, and different soft tissue infections. Ten chapters are devoted to cutaneous and musculoskeletal infections in special groups of patients, which have their own specificity, i.e. in pediatric and HIV-infected patients. Together with chapters on commonly present diseases, there are chapters which discuss interesting but not well studied pathologies (natal cleft pilonidal sinus) and pathogens (Malassezia and Shewanella spp.). The second section reviews etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of bone and joint infections, mainly osteomyelitis and prosthetic joint infections. Also, one chapter in this section discusses a newly emerging bacterial pathogen that causes skeletal infections, Kingella kingae. The third section incorporates alternative and new approaches—such as nanotechnology, ultrasound, novel delivery approaches and phyto-derived medicines—to the treatment and prophylaxis of skin, soft tissue, bone, and joint infections. Encompasses a broad range of skin, soft tissue, bone, and joint infections, including questions of etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prophylaxis Written by highly professional and eminent surgeons, microbiologists, and infectious disease specialists Discusses topics using modern insight, providing all necessary scientific information on each aspect Includes scientific understanding and practical guidelines, which make it interesting for both research scientists and practitioners working with skin, soft tissue, bone, and joint infections

Fundamental Processes in Ecology

An Earth Systems Approach
Author: David M Wilkinson
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780198568469
Category: Science
Page: 182
View: 1663
The book presents a way to study ecosystems that is not yet available in current textbooks but is resonant with current thinking in the emerging fields of geobiology and Earth System Science. It asks and endeavours to answer the question, "what are the really fundamental characteristics of living systems that might allow them to sustain life?" The author goes on to show how the idea of fundamental ecological processes can be developed at the systems level, specifically their involvement in control and feedback mechanisms. This is not a popular science book about Gaian theory, instead it is written as a text and is directed at a predominantly scientific audience.

The objective of this book is to provide a scientific background to dairy microbiology by re-examining the basic concepts of general food microbiology and the microbiology of raw milk while offering a practical approach to the following aspects: well-known and newfound pathogens that are of major concern to the dairy industry. Topics addressed include Cronobactersakazakii and its importance to infant formula milk or Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) that might be connected to chronic human diseases (Crohn’s), the role of dairy starter cultures in manufacturing fermented dairy products, developing novel functional dairy products through the incorporation of probiotic strains, insights in the field of molecular methods for microbial identification, and controlling dairy pathogens owing to the compulsory application of food safety management systems (FSMS) to the dairy industry. The book will provide dairy professionals and students alike the latest information on this vast topic.
