Description

Bacteriology is an important aspect of microbiology that is fundamental to understanding the mechanisms of pathogenic bacteria in disease cause and spread. This necessitates the need to create a book that covers the elementary principles of bacteria and other aspects of bacteriology, especially as it relates to the mechanisms via which they cause disease. Essential Bacteriology has been developed from lectures and seminars given to both graduate and undergraduate students in bacteriology. The general principles of Essential Bacteriology are accompanied by guided reading of informative literatures and textbooks in the field of bacteriology as well as lessons from personal experience inside- and outside- of classroom. This book should be useful for pedagogy in bacteriology, as well as for faculties organizing lessons for students. Students, who wish to learn on their own, as well as scholars and researchers in the area of bacteriology should also, find the book interesting. Essential Bacteriology is one of its kinds.

The book is good for every pedagogical application and research undertakings; and microbiologists in the healthcare sector, industry, environment, government and academic sector will also find the book a wonderful companion. It has a question and glossary section which has defined in simpler terms some of the basic phrases encountered in the field of bacteriology. Essential Basic Bacteriology provides step-to-step protocol on how infectious diseases (in this case, those caused by pathogenic bacteria) can be isolated, identified, treated and controlled or prevented. The basic aspects of bacteria, their metabolic activities, physiology and reproduction are succinctly discussed in this book. The first chapter looks at bacteria and its physiological, colonial and morphological features. Chapter two addresses some notable and clinically important bacteria and their unique characteristics. The third chapter looks at the biology and clinical implications of Mycobacterium, Clostridium, Escherichia, and Pseudomonas. Chapter four looks at the biology and clinical features of Klebsiella, Gardnerella, Clostridium Tetani, Proteus, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and Rickettsia. The fifth chapter addresses the clinical implications and biology of Salmonella, Helicobacter, Treponema, Shigella, Streptococcus Pneumoniae and Listeria. In the sixth chapter, the biology and clinical significance of Bordetella, Yersinia, Chlamydia, Brucella, Borrelia, Acinetobacter, Actinomycetes, Mycoplasmas and L-Form Bacteria is elaborated. The seventh chapter addresses the microbiota of dental diseases and infection. Chapter eight discusses bacterial biofilm. The ninth chapter looks at various culture media and their preparation and uses. Chapter ten looks at the isolation, characterization and storage of bacteria, as well as the biochemical characterization of bacteria.
