Aquatic habitats are rich environments for microbial life and have a global impact on the carbon and nitrogen cycles. The behaviour of microbes in response to changes in these environments can have a huge influence on ecology across the world.
Date: Thursday 15th October 2020
Time: 10am EDT / 3pm BST / 4pm CEST
Join us for a webinar on Aquatic Microbial Ecology, featuring an introduction by Editor Martin Hahn and the authors of recent papers in FEMS Microbiology Ecology with:
