This book, written by leading international scientists, presents an overview of the most recent and exciting new research into the mechanisms that underpin the biofilm mode of life. This includes studies on interactions among biofilm cells, metabolic interactions, cell to cell communication and signal transmission across cells and species, competition and predation across species and domains, the use of modern molecular techniques and confocal laser scanning microscopy to study biofilm community structure and composition, mechanisms of biofilm dissolution, and genomic based studies.
