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. Bacterial Electron Transport to Fumarate 2. Respiration with Nitrate as Acceptor 3. The Strickland Reaction 4. Respiration with Sulfate as Electron Acceptor 5. Respiration in the Ammonia-Oxidizing Sulfur Compounds 6. Heme-Requiring Bacterial Respiratory Systems 7. Respiration in Hydrogen Bacteria 8. Respiratory Electron Flow in Facultative Photosynthetic Bacteria
