Structuring Dynamics of Microbial Communities and their Connections to Ecosystem Functions

Biodiversity and ecosystem processes are both important pillars of ecology. The relationships between these pillars have been a subject of interest for three decades but we are still far from fully understanding them and this especially true for microbial communities. Microbial communities are the backbone for many fundamental processes such as nutrient cycling so it is important that we understand their structuring dynamics and how these dynamics effect changes in ecosystem processes.
