Robert Koch : a life in medicine and bacteriology by Thomas D Brock( Book )

24 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For anyone interested in the origin of the fields of experimental medicine and bacteriology, this book will prove of great value. Robert Koch's story is a stirring example of how a lone country doctor can rise above all odds to become a true scientific revolutionary. Koch was the founder of the discipline of bacteriology, and his work formed the basis for all modern ideas of hygiene and public health. Given the Nobel Prize for his discovery of the cause of tuberculosis, Robert Koch made major contributions to tropical medicine, immunology, and veterinary medicine. He was also a world traveler and made numerous, important research expeditions to India (where he discovered the cause of cholera), Africa, and New Guinea

Pasteur and modern science by René J Dubos( Book )

24 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pasteur and Modern Science, by René Dubos, is here reprinted in a new and expanded hardcover edition. Pasteur's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but the Dubos book is among the best ... Not updated to the present to the present day in an expert new edition by the distinguished microbiologist Thomas D. Brock, the book also has a new foreword by the Pasteur scholar Gerald L. Geison that places the book in historical context. More than forty illustrations and tables have been added, as well as glossary and additional text. For high school and college undergraduate students, and for the general reader, this is the ideal introduction to the life of Louis Pasteur"--Back cover
Thermophilic microorganisms and life at high temperatures by Thomas D Brock( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1987 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1965 through 1975, I conducted an extensive field and laboratory research project on thermophilic microorganisms. The field work was based primarily in Yellowstone National Park, using a field laboratory we set up in the city of W. Yellowstone, Montana. The laboratory work was carried out from 1965 through 1971 at Indiana University, Bloomington, and subsequently at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Although this research project began small, it quickly ramified in a wide variety of directions. The major thrust was an attempt to understand the ecology and evolutionary relationships of thermophilic microorganisms, but research also was done on biochemical, physiologic, and taxonomic aspects of thermophiles. Four new genera of thermophilic microorganisms have been discovered during the course of this 10-year period, three in my laboratory. In addition, a large amount of new information has been obtained on some thermophilic microorganisms that previously had been known. In later years, a considerable amount of work was done on Yellowstone algal­ bacterial mats as models for Precambrian stromatolites. In the broadest sense, the work could be considered geomicrobiological, or biogeochemi­ cal, and despite the extensive laboratory research carried out, the work was always firmly rooted in an attempt to understand thermophilic microorga­ nisms in their natural environments. Indeed, one of the prime motivations for initiating this work was a view that extreme environments would provide useful models for studying the ecology of microorganisms. As a result of this 10-year research project, I published over 100 papers
A eutrophic lake : Lake Mendota, Wisconsin by Thomas D Brock( Book )

13 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lake Mendota has often been called "the most studied lake in the world." Beginning in the "classic" period of limnology in the late 19th century and continuing through the present time, this lake has been the subject of a wide variety of studies. Although many of these studies have been published in accessible journals, a significant number have appeared in local monographs and reports, ephemeral documents, or poorly distributed journals. To date, there has been no attempt at a synthetic treatment ofthe vast amount of work that has been published. One intent of the present book is to present a comƯ prehensive compilation of the major early studies on Lake Mendota and to examine how they impinge on important present-day biological questions. In addition, this book presents a summary of field and laboratory work carried out in my own laboratory over a period of about 6 years and shows where correlations with earlier work exist. The book should be ofinterest to limnologists desiring a ready reference to data and published papers on this important lake, to biogeochemists, oceanƯ ographers, and low-temperature geochemists interested in lakes as model sysƯ tems for global processes, and to lake managers interested in understanding short-term and long-term changes in lake systems. Although the major thrust ofthe present book is ecologicaland environmental, sufficient background has been presented on other aspects ofLake Mendota's limnology so that the book should also be useful to nonbiologists
