This volume presents an in-depth examination of the complex ecosystems of the mammalian mucosa and the adaptations of microorganisms that enable them to colonize these surfaces. It contains 28 chapters divided into three main sections covering the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tracts. A sampling of topics includes competitive and cooperative interactions in the respiratory microflora; the role of the mucus layer in the bacterial colonization of the intestine; and host response to urinary tract infection.
