Advances in Microbial Ecology

Microbial Ecology deals with the scientific study and analysis of interactions among organisms and their environment. It is an interdisciplinary field that involve Biology and Earth science. An important focus for ecologists is how to improve the understanding of biodiversity that affects ecological function. This includes all microbial ecosystems, environmental applications, human health interactions, infectious diseases, the human microbiome, as well as interactions between microbes and macroorganisms. Topics will also include technological developments and applications of microbes in agriculture, the oceans, and soils. Finally, we will include implications of current knowledge for the developing world, and for training the next generation of scientists
