Extreme soils oppose chemical or physical limits to colonization by most soil organisms and present the microbiologist with exciting opportunities. Described here are a range of fascinating environments from permafrost to Martian soils. The book includes chapters on basic research in addition to applications in biotechnology and bioremediation.Rosenberry DO, Glaser PH, Siegel DI, Weeks EP (2003) Use of hydraulic head to estimate volumetric gas content and ebullition ...
