Summary
  • An introduction to the role of microbes in everyday life identifies beneficial and harmful microbes and outlines exercises and activities based on the scientific method to encourage exploration of one's microbiological surroundings
  • "If our vision improved one million times, we would be able to see microbes in the air, on our skin, in the soil, in water, and on food! In Microbes: Discover an Unseen World, readers journey through microscopic worlds that collide with our own on a daily basis to encounter bacteria, viruses, fungi, protists, and archaea,"--page [4] of cover
