It is the aim of this book to present reviews on a wide range of aspects of bacterial respiratory systems. Because the on-going publication elsewhere of reviews on bacterial respiration, a �blanket� coverage of the field has not been attempted. Rather, a range of topics have been selected, either because they are of special current interest, they have not been reviewed recently, or they have never been reviewed.
1. Growth Yield Values in Relation to Respiration 2. Electron-Transfer-Driven Solute Translocation Across Bacterial Membranes 3. Temporal Diversity of Bacterial Respiratory Systems: Membrane and Respiratory Development During the Cell Cycle 4. The Respiratory System of Escherichia coli 5. Oxygen Reactive Hemoprotein Components in Bacterial Respiratory Systems 6. Respiration in Methanogenic Bacteria 7. Respiration in Methylotropic Bacteria
