Microbial structuring of marine ecosystems

  title={Microbial structuring of marine ecosystems},
  author={Farooq Azam and Francesca Malfatti},
  journal={Nature Reviews Microbiology},
Despite the impressive advances that have been made in assessing the diversity of marine microorganisms, the mechanisms that underlie the participation of microorganisms in marine food webs and biogeochemical cycles are poorly understood. Here, we stress the need to examine the biochemical interactions of microorganisms with ocean systems at the nanometre to millimetre scale — a scale that is relevant to microbial activities. The local impact of microorganisms on biogeochemical cycles must then… CONTINUE READING
