A Field Guide to Bacteria
By Betsey Dexter Dyer
Meet the humble bacterium. It way outnumbers us, and can live in just about every kind of environment on Earth. Dexter Dyer's A Field Guide to Bacteria introduces the reader to the flora and fauna of the microscopic bacterial kingdom, including the symbiotic kinds that help you digest your food. Illustrated and filled with anecdotes, this naturalist's guide is a favorite of Exploratorium Living Systems exhibit designer Denise King. Written for the newcomer to this tiny, yet huge world. Paperback, 368 pages.
