Lives of the Microbes

The author of The Amoeba in the Room, Nicholas Money, explores the extraordinary breadth of the microbial world and the vast biological diversity that can be detected only through molecular methods.

Money shows that that most of life isn't classified as either plant or animal and that we have failed to comprehend the full spectrum of life on earth, which is far more diverse than previously imagined.

Money's engaging work considers this diversity in all its forms, exploring environments from the backyard pond to the ocean floor to the "mobile ecosystem" of our own bodies.
