Microbial Ecology in States of Health and Disease
Publisher: National Academies Press 2014
Number of pages: 548
Individually and collectively, resident microbes play important roles in host health and survival. Shaping and shaped by their host environments, these microorganisms form intricate communities that are in a state of dynamic equilibrium. This ecologic and dynamic view of host-microbe interactions is rapidly redefining our view of health and disease.
