ISBN: 0847899861

A leading bacteria scientist combines unique scientific and artistic techniques, along with accessible text to reveal the microbial world within and around us.

Beautiful Bacteria merges stunning imagery with a new way of looking at something we interact with every day. Each chapter introduces the different types of bacteria, illustrated with singularly beautiful images of these minute life forms and an approachable text that explains where bacteria is located and what it does. Much as New York Times bestseller I Contain Multitudes did, Beautiful Bacteria brings the invisible world that has shaped our species to life.

While we know microbes in our world are relevant, the focus of this book is what the invisible, microbial world looks like, where it comes from, and where new discoveries and biotechnology are taking us. Looking at the microbial world reveals countless questions about life and connects with the personal realm of bacteria in our daily lives. From the dazzling patterns of Proteus mirabilis to the shimmering fractals of E. coli and more, each chapter touches upon the little-seen microscopic universe and the impact it has on our macroscopic society, and sheds light on how we coexist in an increasingly biotechnological world.
