FEMS Microbiology Ecology Webinar on Microbial Ecotoxicology

The term “microbial ecotoxicology” was coined to describe interdisciplinary investigations of the response of the microbial compartment in ecosystems subject to environmental contamination. The webinar speakers will present key recent investigations in this emerging area of microbial ecology research: microbial adaptation in antimony contaminated soils; response of soil and phyllosphere microbial communities to repeated fungicide application; and shaping of urban bacterial communities by green infrastructure and atmospheric pollution.
