Special Issue by invitation only: Nitrogen Fixation Across the Aquascape: Current Perspectives, Future Priorities

Nitrogen fixation rates, and the diversity of the organisms that fix nitrogen, remain largely unconstrained in the aquatic landscapes or aquascapes (e.g., lakes, wetlands, streams, rivers, estuaries) between land and sea. As a result, we lack a mechanistic understanding of the controls and contributions of nitrogen fixation across disparate aquatic environments, and cannot accurately incorporate this process into local and global N budgets. This special issue will bring together papers highlighting current advances in understanding of N fixation within and across all aquatic habitats, integrating novel methodology, quantification of fluxes in understudied habitats, microbiome studies, and any other relevant topics or approaches.
