This latest book from the "e;Basher Science"e; series investigates the unseen world of microbes. Basher's distinctive style presents key microbes as characters with their own voice and personality. "e;Microbiology"e; investigates the "e;teensy tykes"e; such as algae and bacteria that are all around us in the living world, as well as a range of so-called "e;minibeasts,"e; but these are not the usual creepy-crawlies that you might think of. These near-invisible creatures range from the zooplankton "e;good guys"e; to the unpleasant tapeworm and fluke. Yuk
"e;Microbiology"e; explains the different building blocks of the human body, as well as the nasty bugs that can make us so ill, whether it's catching a common cold or something much more deadly such as tuberculosis, the second biggest killer in the modern world.
