About the Author

Kurt Konhauser is a Canada Research Chair in Geomicrobiology in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Alberta. He is also Editor-in-Chief for Geobiology. His current research interests include the role of bacteria in modern mineral precipitation, and how those same processes may have contributed to the preservation of early life forms and the formation of Precambrian banded iron formations.


?I recommend the book to anyone who is interested in where particular microbes live, how they live and what effects they may exert on our planet Earth. Certainly I will be using the book when preparing my lectures.? (Geology Today, 1 May 2011) "This text is well illustrated with clear, informative and well-described diagrams and some splendid electron micrographs with convincing evidence for mineral deposition by bacterial action. A good index and up-to-date references make this a book that undergraduates of any biological discipline could use as an introductory text that would be useful throughout their course." Times Higher Education Supplement "A thorough and informative overview of the subject?comprehensively referenced throughout. ?Dr Kohnhauser has done an excellent job in integrating the diverse aspects of geomicrobiology and making them accessible and interesting to...a wide range of readers." European Journal of Soil Science ?The most comprehensive general book in geomicrobiology, showing the great advances made in geomicrobiology during the past few years ? Packed with information.? Journal of Sedimentary Research "I would recommend this book to any upper undergraduate / graduate students who wish to study geomicrobiology, as well as to researchers in geomicrobiology who may find here either a nice way to fill possible gaps in their knowledge or a starting point for new research." Journal of Sedimentary Research
