6. Microbial ecology and evolution All biology was microbiology for 2.6 billion years before the evolution of multicellular organisms. Many ecosystems remain wholly microbial and microorganisms continue to control environments that appear to be governed by plants and animals. Earth is an exceedingly microbiological planet. And, if life evolves elsewhere in the universe, microbes rather than larger organisms are certain to be the most numerous residents. Reason for confidence in this assertion comes from considering the flow of energy in our biosphere.

2. Viruses are everywhere Until a short while ago, most virus discovery programmes were fuelled by attempts to find the causative agents of human, animal, and plant diseases. This has given the impression that viruses generally cause disease, but molecular techniques for large-scale environmental genome sampling show that this is far from true. It is now clear that viruses form a huge biomass of enormous variety and complexity in the environment, the whole being aptly termed the ‘virosphere’.

2. How microbes operate In this chapter we will consider the mechanisms that sustain prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms. All active cells must be supplied with water and an energy source. Absorption of water is essential, even in extremely dry or salty habitats, because the enzymes that catalyse biochemical reactions in cells do not work unless they are hydrated. Sunlight powers the metabolism of photosynthetic microbes and others glean chemical energy from a plenitude of terrestrial sources. Extremes in temperature, acidity, and other environmental variables place additional constraints upon microbial life, but bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotic microorganisms thrive in most places

5. Microbiology of human health and disease all microorganisms as a pernicious component of life. This picture is beginning to change. Recent research suggests that populations of microbes that live in our digestive, reproductive, and respiratory tracts are as important to our wellbeing as the avoidance and treatment of infection. This molecular analysis of the human microbiome may stimulate a future revolution in medicine.

8. Afterword What have we learned about evolution in the 140 years since Darwin and Wallace first published their ideas? As we have seen, the modern view is remarkably close in many ways to theirs, with a strong consensus that natural selection is the major force guiding the evolution of structures, functions, and behaviours. The chief difference is that two advances mean that the process of evolution through selection acting on random mutations of the genetic material is now much more credible than it was at the beginning of the 20th century. First, we have a much richer body of
