Role of Microbes in Restoration Ecology

ISBN: 9781773611952

$160.00

Microorganisms have critical roles in the functioning of environment, structural formation, and plant interactions, both positive and negative. These roles are important in reestablishing function and biodiversity in ecosystem restoration. This book will focus on topics where microbial ecology contributes to management, restoration and sustainability of the biosphere. Discussing current microbial ecology and environmental microbiology, it will review the role of microbial communities in ecosystem services, with examples from both natural and managed ecosystems. It also highlights the untold ways in which microbial communities influence environmental quality and sustainability.

Dr Prashant Pant, Dr Pratibha Pant and Dr Prerna Pandey

Dr. Prashant Pant, is an Assistant Professor of Botany in Dyal Singh College, University of Delhi, New Delhi, India. He has been teaching for more than 5 years now and his main areas have been Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology and Genomics at the college. His PhD was on understanding the Microbial Succession using a Metagenomic approach in a Barren mined-out site undergoing ecological restoration. For this, he deployed many molecular and computational Biology tool and techniques. He has several publications (articles and book chapters) in International Journals and International Publications. Currently, he is also Chief Editor of Bioinformatics Review and a co-founder/Executive Chief Editor of a Science Journal in Hindi Language “Swadeshi Vigyan” for the native language speaking communities. Both the Journals are a service to the scientific community as they are fully open access. Dr. Pratibha Pant, is an Assistant Professor of Botany in Daulat Ram College, University of Delhi, New Delhi, India and has a teaching experience of more than 6 years. She is a plant virologist and biotechnologist by training and has done her PhD in Characterization of Begomoviral genomes from Papaya from Department of Botany, University of Delhi. During her PhD, she utilized a combination of molecular biology and Computational Biology tools to analyze begomoviral genomes and to her credit, a couple of novel begomoviruses have been isolated, sequenced and reported in public databases. Dr Prerna Pandey, a biotechnologist with several years of wet lab research experience, worked at International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, New Delhi. Her field of research in PhD included isolation and molecular characterization of geminiviruses, genome sequencing, gene annotation, and gene silencing using the RNA interference technology. She has also worked at Transasia Biomedicals and Advance Enzyme Technologies as a scientist. Prerna has published papers in peer-reviewed journals, and has submitted a number of annotated Geminiviral genome sequences in the GenBank, including two novel ones. She has also completed her editing and proof-reading courses from Society for the promotion of Editors and Proof-readers, UK and now works as a freelance scientific editor and writer. When Prerna is not busy with her assignments, she loves to explore historical places.
