Zum ersten Mal seit zehn Jahren wieder behandelt ein Lehrbuch dieses immer wichtiger werdende Thema - gerade in Zeiten des globalen Klimawandels. Eine kurze Einführung zu Beginn von "Ecological Biochemistry" deckt die Grundlagen der Biochemie und Molekularbiologie in ausreichender Tiefe ab. Im Hauptteil konzentriert sich das Buch auf Pflanzen-Umwelt- und Bakterien-Umwelt-Interaktionen. Ergänzt wird dieser durch ein eigenes Kapitel über aquatische Systeme. Darüber hinaus ist ein ganzer Abschnitt den Methoden gewidmet, zu allen Themen sind Übungen und Zusatzmaterial online verfügbar.

Gerd-Joachim Krauss is full Professor Emeritus for Ecological and Plant Biochemistry at the Martin-Luther-University of Halle, Germany, where he gained his PhD in plant biochemistry. He was responsible for research projects at the University of Sackville, Canada, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, and Université de Pau/CNRS, Pau, France. His research interests are focused on metal stress response in plants and fungi, and
the development of HPLC and coupling techniques.

Dietrich H. Nies is full Professor for Molecular Microbiology at the Martin-Luther-University of Halle, Germany. He began his academic career in Göttingen, carrying out his postdoc in Berlin and at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Professor Nies`s research centers on the interaction of bacteria with transition metals.
