Bacteria inhabit all corners of the Earth and form complex symbiotic systems based on a variety of interactions. Systems within living organisms are no exception, such as the outer surface or intestinal tract of an animal, or the rhizosphere or root nodules of a plant. Symbiotic bacteria and their hosts mutually influence one another, in some cases forming inseparable relationships through coevolution. This ambitious title spans everything from the fundamentals to the latest discoveries concerning symbiotic bacteria. It is an invaluable compendium on symbiosis between microorganisms and mammals, insects, aquatic life, and plants.
