Predatory Prokaryotes Biology, Ecology and Evolution

Predatory Prokaryotes focuses on the ecology of predation at the microbial level. It aims to increase the awareness of the great possibilities that predation between microbes offer for studying and discussing basic ecological and general biological concepts. This volume contains chapters on the dive...
