FEMS Microbiology Ecology Webinar On Microbial Life Strategies


Microbial communities vary greatly as microbes adopt very different niches. Functional and physiological traits are underlying drivers of niche differentiation, while feeding patterns by eukaryotic predators also have a important role to play on the soil microbiota. Yet, microbial communities can have dramatically different compositions even among similar environments. This webinar will dive into the complex topic of microbial life strategies.
