Trends in the Systematics of Bacteria and Fungi is a new book edited by Paul Bridge, David Smith and Erko Stackebrandt and published by CABI.
This book provides insight into how current methods and resources are being used in microbial systematics, together with some thoughts and suggestions as to how both methodologies and concepts may develop in the future. It includes coverage of the philosophy and changes in microbial systematics, including the relevance of names, new concepts of species, and the issues encountered with species that cannot be grown in culture. It also looks at the application of new identification technologies, the challenges of using published databases and other data resources in arriving at an identification appropriate to current species concepts, and the practical requirements of an identification.
