Описание: Until now there has been no single source available for use in identifying bacterial microbes from so many diverse marine and freshwater animals. However, Bacteria from Fish and Other Aquatic Animals: a Practical Identification Manual now provides just such a source with global application. This practical, user-friendly identification manual will be of great value to inexperienced and experienced bacteriologists, microbiology teachers and/or students, aquatic animal health researchers or diagnosticians, as well as to workers in public health facilities or medical laboratories who work with marine and freshwater fish, birds, mammals, molluscs, shellfish, reptiles or amphibians. Aided by numerous tables and colour figures the author discusses conventional bacterial identification procedures, commercially available data-based identification kits, molecularly based PCR and 16S rDNA sequencing, thus providing utility to a broad scientific sector. In this single volume one can find biochemical, biophysical and molecular characteristics of nearly 400 species of aquatic bacteria, media on which they are cultured and a brief discussion of many diseases with which they are associated. Assembling this manual was a monumental task and its author, Nicky B. Buller, is to be highly commended for providing this invaluable addition to aquatic microbiology.
