Its scope encompasses a wide variety of microorganisms including spoilage, probiotic, fermentative, and pathogenic bacteria, molds, yeasts, viruses, prions, and parasites; a diverse composition of foods and beverages; a broad spectrum of environmental factors that influence microbial survival and growth; and a multitude of research approaches that range from very applied studies of survival and growth of foodborne microorganisms to basic studies of the mechanisms of pathogenicity of disease-causing, foodborne microorganisms.

Several excellent books address many different aspects of food microbiology. The purpose of Food Microbiology: Fundamentals and Frontiers are to complement these books by providing new, state of the science information that emphasizes the molecular and mechanistic aspects of food microbiology, and not to dwell on other aspects well covered in introductory food microbiology texts. The fourth edition provides new information regarding recent advances in all aspects of food microbiology. 

Major revisions have been made to chapters addressing foodborne pathogens, which is an area exploding with new findings. New chapters on Enterobacter sakazakii, prions, genomics and proteomics, and molecular source tracking/molecular subtyping appear in the new fourth edition. Chapters focused on nuts and cereals and on biodefense also have been added.
