Alcamo's Fundamentals of Microbiology, Eighth Edition provides a firm foundation in microbiology with an emphasis on human disease. It is written for students in nursing and allied health programs and is appropriate for non-majors microbiology courses. The Eighth Edition of this classic text, revised by award winning educator Jeffrey Pommerville, retains the late Ed Alcamo's student friendly style. Microbiology is a rapidly advancing and dynamic discipline. Dr. Pommerville presents new content on recent discoveries, such as information on the avian flu and the 2006 Midwest mumps outbreak, in a manner that is directly applicable to students. Dr. Pommerville also integrates new teaching pedagogies, based on his years of teaching experience, to promote problem-based learningand facilitate mastery of concepts.
