Omschrijving

This book brings a fresh view to climate change by focusing on microorganisms, including solutions, such as producing biofuels, helping to keep soil carbon in the ground, and catalysing the removal of greenhouse gases like methane. Readers of this book will discover that microorganisms have remarkable abilities that can be used to address many different aspects of climate change.

This book brings a fresh view to climate change by focusing on microorganisms, including solutions, such as producing biofuels, helping to keep soil carbon in the ground, and catalysing the removal of greenhouse gases like methane. Readers of this book will discover that microorganisms have remarkable abilities that can be used to address many different aspects of climate change.

Professor Kirchman, a leading scholar in microbial ecology, has moved the needle with this thoughtful and comprehensive synthesis of relevant information on intersections of microorganisms, human activities, and global climate change. This is a must read for all Earth scientists.

This timely book addresses one of the most pressing challenges facing our planet - global warming due to increasing amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in our atmosphere. Earth's microorganisms play a key role in both the production and consumption of GHGs, and may even help mitigate global warming if they consume more than they produce.

David L. Kirchman was the Maxwell P. and Mildred H. Harrington Professor of Marine Studies at the University of Delaware until he retired in 2020 and was elected as a fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography. Author of over 175 papers and two books, and editor of the "bible" of microbial oceanography (Microbial Ecology of the Oceans), Kirchman worked on the marine carbon cycle in regions around the world, from the Arctic to Antarctica. His findings were instrumental in showing the importance of bacteria and the rest of the microbial loop in the marine carbon cycle. He received a B.A. from Lawrence University and the Ph.D. from Harvard University.
