Environmental microbiology as a mosaic of explored ecosystems and issues

Abstract

Microbes are phylogenetically (Archaea, Bacteria, Eukarya, and viruses) and functionally diverse. They colonize highly varied environments and rapidly respond to and evolve as a response to local and global environmental changes, including those induced by pollutants resulting from human activities. This review exemplifies the Microbial Ecology EC2CO consortium’s efforts to explore the biology, ecology, diversity, and roles of microbes in aquatic and continental ecosystems.
