Description of Microbiology in Agriculture & Human Health

Microbiology in Agriculture & Human Health by M. M. Shah is an eBook helps to study agricultural microbiology available in PDF free download. Microbiology involves the study of microscopic living organisms. Most of them are unicellular and all the life processes are performed by a single cell. They are associated with the health and welfare of human beings. Among the microbiology, biological sciences have established itself a place in the current century.

Microorganisms also provide experimental models in various research activities, and an answer to numerous fundamental questions in metabolism/genetics, function and cell form. This Microbiology in Agriculture and Human Health book is presented in six chapters comprising of two sections. The 1st section deals with Microbiology and Agriculture and the second section deals with Microbiology and Human Health. The Microbiology in Agriculture and Human Health book is expected to attract a wide audience from various fields of biological sciences in general, and microbiologists in particular.
