Microbes are some of the oldest forms of life, and they are deeply embedded in the world around us.
Eugenia Bone went back to school in middle age to find out all she could about microbes—those organisms that can only be observed under a microscope. Attending Columbia University to study Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology she learned that the field is simply teeming with them. In her new book, Bone provides a broad but accessible overview of the role microbes play, and underscores their importance to the existence of everything on earth: atmosphere, soil, plants, and people.
Bone will be joined in conversation by Julie Wolf, Communications Specialist at American Society for Microbiology Science, followed by a Q&A.
