From the reviews:

"The starting place of this publication is a world assembly hung on halophilic microorganisms, geared up in Seville, Spain, in 2001. In 22 chapters contributed via greater than a hundred authors, each one a consultant in his box, quite a few points of the biology of those extremophilic organisms … are handled … . this booklet is a needs to for each researcher inspired via reports on those halophilic organisms." (Klaus Hausmann, eu magazine of Protistology, Vol. forty-one (1), 2005)

1982); mercury in the Ottawa River (Kushner et al. 1979); and microbial effects on mercury in natural waters (Ramamoorthy et al. 1977, 1982, 1983). The information provided by these studies was of great importance to the environmental “pollution problem”, particularly mercury contamination of the Ottawa River. Donn Kushner published over 150 research papers, book chapters and reviews, resulting from his research work at the University of Ottawa and NRC. This body of work established him internationally as a leading researcher and authority on microbial life in extreme environments, including halophiles and psychrophiles, and of microbial ecology.

These are widely distributed, but often in relatively inaccessible parts of the world. One of the most accessible areas is the East African Rift Valley, part of an enormous volcanic rift that stretches from the north of Africa with an eastern branch through Kenya and Tanzania (Fig. 1). My geologist colleagues in Leicester had been examining the geology and hydrology of the area for some time. The climate of the rift is semi-arid or arid with a geology dominated by Na+ trachyte lavas as a consequence of vulcanism (still active in certain areas).
