About The Author

Daniel H. Buckley

Daniel H. Buckley

Dr. Daniel H. Buckley is an Associate Professor at Cornell University in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences. He earned his B.S. in Microbiology (1994) at the University of Rochester and his Ph.D. in Microbiology (2000) at Michigan State University. Buckley's graduate research focused on the ecology of soil microbial communities and was conducted in the laboratory of Thomas M. Schmidt in affiliation with the Center for Microbial Ecology. Dr. Buckley's postdoctoral research examined linkages between microbial diversity and biogeochemistry in marine microbial mats and stromatolites and was conducted in the laboratory of Pieter T. Visscher at the University of Connecticut. Dan joined the Cornell faculty in 2003. His research program investigates the ecology and evolution of microbial communities in soils with a focus on the causes and consequences of microbial diversity. He has taught both introductory and advanced courses in microbiology, microbial diversity, and microbial genomics. He received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award in 2005 for excellence in integrating research and education. He has served as Director of the Graduate Field of Soil and Crop Sciences at Cornell and Co-Director of the Marine Biological Laboratory Microbial Diversity Summer course in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Dr. Buckley currently serves on the editorial boards of Applied and Environmental Microbiology and Environmental Microbiology. Dan lives in Ithaca, New York with his wife Merry and sons Finn and Colin. Daniel enjoys running and a variety of outdoor sports but, most of all, catching critters down at the creek with his sons.

David A. Stahl

David A. Stahl

David A. Stahl received his B.S. degree in Microbiology from the University of Washington, Seattle, and completed graduate studies in microbial phylogeny and evolution with Carl Woese in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.  Subsequent work as a postdoctoral fellow and research associate with Norman Pace, then at the National Jewish Hospital in Colorado, involved early applications of 16S rRNA-based sequence analysis to the study of natural microbial communities. In 1984 Stahl joined the faculty at the University of Illinois with appointments in Microbiology, Veterinary Medicine, and Civil Engineering.  In 1994 he moved to the Department of Civil Engineering at Northwestern University, and in 2000 returned to the University of Washington as professor in the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Microbiology. Stahl is known for his work in ecology, microbial evolution, and systematics, and received the 1999 Bergey Award and the 2006 ASM Procter & Gamble Award in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.  Dave is a fellow in the American Academy of Microbiology and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.  His main research interests surround the biogeochemistry of nitrogen and sulfur and the microbial communities that sustain the associated nutrient cycles. Stahl's laboratory was first to culture ammonia-oxidizing Archaea, a group believed to be the key mediators of this process in the nitrogen cycle. He has taught several courses in environmental microbiology, was one of the co-founding editors of the journal Environmental Microbiology, and has served on many advisory committees. Outside the lab, Dave enjoys bicycling, spending time with family, hiking, reading a good science fiction book, and with his wife Lin renovating an old farmhouse on Bainbridge Island.

Kelly S. Bender

Kelly S. Bender

Dr. Kelly S. Bender received her B.S. in Biology from Southeast Missouri State University (1999) and her Ph.D. (2003) in Molecular Biology, Microbiology, and Biochemistry from Southern Illinois University–Carbondale.  Her dissertation work focused on the genetics of perchlorate-reducing bacteria. During her post-doctoral fellowship, Kelly worked on the genetic regulation of sulfate-reducing bacteria in the laboratory of Judy Wall at the University of Missouri–Columbia.  She also completed a transatlantic biotechnology fellowship at Uppsala University in Sweden researching regulatory small RNAs in bacteria.  In 2006, Kelly returned to her alma mater, Southern Illinois University–Carbondale, as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology and was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 2012. Her lab studies a range of topics including the regulation of stress responses by small RNAs, microbial community dynamics of sites impacted by acid mine drainage, and the bioremediation of uranium by metal- and sulfate-reducing bacteria. Dr. Bender teaches courses in molecular biology and microbial genetics, and has served on numerous federal grant review panels, and is an active member of the American Society for Microbiology. Her other interests include cooking, biking, and spending time with family, friends, and her miniature schnauzer, Pepper.

Michael T. Madigan

Michael T. Madigan

Dr. Michael T. Madigan received his B.S. in Biology and Education from Wisconsin State University–Stevens Point (1971) and his M.S. (1974) and Ph.D. (1976) in Bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Dr. Madigan's graduate research was on the hot spring bacterium Chloroflexus in the laboratory of Thomas Brock. Following a 3 year postdoctoral at Indiana University, Mike moved to Southern Illinois University–Carbondale, where he taught introductory microbiology and bacterial diversity as a professor of microbiology for thirty three years. In 1988 Mike was selected as the Outstanding Teacher in the College of Science and in 1993, the Outstanding Researcher. In 2001 he received the SIUC Outstanding Scholar Award. In 2003 he received the Carski Award for Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching from the American Society for Microbiology, and he is an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology. Dr. Madigan research is focused on bacteria that inhabit extreme environments, and for the past 15 years he has studied Antarctic microbiology. In addition to research papers, he has edited a major treatise on phototrophic bacteria and served for 10 years as chief editor of the journal Archives of Microbiology. He currently serves on the editorial board of the journals Environmental Microbiology and Antonie van Leeuwenhoek. Madigan’s nonscientific interests include reading, forestry, and caring for his horses and dogs. He lives on a quiet lake with his wife, Nancy, 4 shelter dogs and 3 horses (Eddie, Gwen, and Festus).

W. Matthew Sattley

Brock Biology of Microorganisms, 16th Edition (PDF) sets the standard for accuracy, impeccable scholarship, a visually stunning art program, and cutting-edge research to illustrate basic concepts. The textbook guides students through the six major themes of microbiology — Evolution, Cell Structure and Function, Information Flow and Genetics, Microbial Systems, Metabolic Pathways, and the Impact of Microorganisms — as outlined by the American Society for Microbiology Conference on Undergraduate Education (ASMCUE). This robust and modern approach takes science students through the genomics revolution and “omics” maze that has transformed microbiology and shares powerful tools that microbiologists use to probe deeper and further into the microbial world than ever before.

The 16th Edition expands the unique art program to ensure students experience microbiology as a visual science while providing an overview of the microbial world with basic principles that students need to master. Each chapter’s theme focuses on a recent discovery that connects students with the most current science and engages them with exciting, real-world topics.
