This book provides a detailed compendium of the methods, biotechnological routes and processes used to investigate microbial resources and their applications. It covers the fundamental and applied aspects of microorganisms in the health, industry, agriculture and environmental sectors, reviewing subjects such as pest control, health and industrial developments and animal feed. Essential reading for researchers in biotechnology, biopharmaceuticals and agriculture, this book provides valuable information and presents recent developments in areas as diverse as crop productivity, mycorrhizal fungi, enzymes and plant disease management.

“Edited by one of the most renowned experts in bioprocesses, [this book] is extremely opportune not just to meet a growing demand in the sector, but also for its comprehensiveness and indisputable competence.”
