Welcome to the Microbiome
by DeSalle & Perkins
Getting to Know the Trillions of Bacteria and other Microbes in, on and around you.
This thoroughly fascinating and absorbing book explores the paradigm shift from a focus on single pathogenic organisms to understanding communities of organisms living in and on us. It present the historical perspective and describes recent scientific developments. The authors reveal the astounding diversity of species composition that exists across body parts and systems from the skin to the digestive system and across both individuals and groups. As with any complex ecosystem, the human microbiome is composed of species playing varied roles; when a critical species begins to decline, it alters the entire ecosystem.
