  • In the framework of initiatives, aiming at a better definition of biodiversity in microorganisms and of its role in ecosystem function, the biology of yeasts is revisited with particular emphasis on their ecology and classification. The limited number of different species isolated from, as well as the exceedingly low yeast cell counts in, most natural environments are discussed and possible explanations presented. The impact of the use of molecular taxonomic techniques of classification on the… CONTINUE READING
