General description

A selection of titles from the long-running series published by Academic Press.

Biofilms are a grouping of microorganisms surrounded by a protective matrix of secreted polymers. They are important in industry, agriculture, biotechnology and the study of disease. This volume provides up-to-date information for virtually any kind of experimental approach involving biofilms.
