The vast amount of literature which has arisen recently on studies of micro-organisms and the attendant inability of the worker to keep abreast of all aspects of the field prompted initiation of this new series of reviews.

This volume and its successors are intended to fulfil the same function that "Annual Review of Biochemistry" and "Annual Review of Physiology" have in their respective fields. The type of review and manner of presentation are similar to those of the companion series.

The contents of this first volume include morphology and cytology of protozoa, antigenic variation in protozoa and bacteria, life cycle of malarial parasites, variation in phytopathogenic viruses, some aspects of the problem of growth factors for protozoa, bacterial metabolism, nitrogen metabolism, industrial fermentations, quaternary ammonium compounds, antibiotics, chemotherapeutic agents, medical and epidemiologic aspects of enteric infection, the Rickettsiae and respiratory viruses.
