A group of microbiologists from China, Germany and additional European countries met in Beijing in September 2007 and held a conference entitled “Microbes and the Environment”. The purpose of this conference was to evaluate how microbes shape the planet and might be harnessed to solve environmental problems. The book provides an overview of many of the contributions made during the conference.

Chapter 4 Exploring an unknown world: bacteria of the deep biosphere below the seafloor
Chapter 5 Temperature effects on methanogenic microbial communities
Chapter 6 Microbial diversity under long-term fertilization regimes of Chinese soils
Chapter 7 Functional gene assessment of denitrifying Prokaryotes: implications for understanding the ecology of denitrifiers
Chapter 8 Uncultured microorganisms in Hainan mangrove soil: diversity and functional genes
Chapter 9 Acetogens: anaerobic gamblers at the oxic-anoxic interface
Chapter 10 Phosphorus cycling at water: sediment interface mediated by phosphorus-solublizing bacteria
Chapter 11 Planktonic bacteria in Chinese and European lakes: are they different?
