Publication of a textbook requires effort of many people besides the authors. We wish to express special appreciation to the editorial and production staffs of McGraw-Hill for their excellent work. In particular, we would like to thank Jean Fornango, our senior developmental editor, for her guidance, patience, prodding, and support. Our project manager, Jayne Klein, supervised production of this very complex project with commendable attention to detail. Beatrice Sussman, our copy editor for the second through fifth editions, once again corrected our errors in the sixth edition and contributed immensely to the text's clarity, consistency, and readability.

We wish to extend our appreciation to people who assisted us individually in completion of this project. Lansing Prescott wants to thank George M. Garrity, the editor-in-chief of Bergey's Manual, for his aid in the preparation of the fifth and sixth editions. Donald Klein wishes to acknowledge the aid of Jeffrey O. Dawson and Frank B. Dazzo.

Finally, but most importantly, we wish to extend appreciation to our families for their patience and encouragement, especially to our wives, Linda Prescott, Donna Dailey Harley, and Sandra Klein. To them, we dedicate this book.

Lansing M. Prescott
John P. Harley
Donald A. Klein
