This two-volume set will be useful to the established continuous culture operator, as well as the researcher, teacher, and student who is interested in learning how the technique of continuous culture could be useful in answering both basic and applied questions in microbiology and cell biology.

Peter H Calcott graduated from the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, with a B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Biological Sciences in 1969. He received his D. Phil. (Biology) in 1972 from the University of Sussex, England under the supervision of Professor J.R. Postgate.
Dr. Calcott’s research interests revolve around the reaction of microbes to stress, primarily freezing and thawing and starvation. He is particularly interested in the role of cell wall and membrane structures in determining the resistance of organisms to stress, continuous culture of microbes and the role of small molecules such as cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP in cell metabolism. Dr. Calcott has published more than 50 research papers, reviews, books, and abstracts over his career.
