The true extent of prokaryote diversity, encompassing the spectrum of variability among bacteria, remains unknown. Early discussions on prokaryote diversity were frequently devoted to sterile arguments about 'how much?' or 'how many?'. Increasingly, however, the focus is turning towards trying to understand why prokaryote diversification occurs, its underlying mechanisms, and its likely impact. This book will appeal to a wide variety of microbiologists. Its coverage ranges from studies of prokaryotes in specialised environmental niches to broad examinations of prokaryote evolution and diversity and the mechanisms underlying them.
