By Helga Stan-Lotter (auth.), Prof. Dr. Helga Stan-Lotter, Dr. Sergiu Fendrihan (eds.)

Once thought of unheard of rarities, extremophiles became beautiful items for uncomplicated and utilized examine starting from nanotechnology to biodiversity to the origins of lifestyles or even to the hunt for extraterrestrial existence. numerous novel elements of extremophiles are coated during this ebook; the point of interest is to begin with on strange and not more explored ecosystems equivalent to marine hypersaline deeps, severe chilly, wasteland sands, and man-made fresh rooms for spacecraft meeting. Secondly, the more and more advanced box of purposes from extremophile examine is taken care of and examples resembling novel psychrophilic enzymes, compounds from halophiles, and detection ideas for capability extraterrestrial lifestyles varieties are presented.
