In contrast to macroscopic organisms, for which limited dispersal is common and therefore local endemism frequent, microorganisms are often considered to be mostly cosmopolitan, and therefore the presence of a given species at a given location is controlled only by its tolerance to local environmental conditions (Sandon, 1927; Finlay, 2002; Community Ecology Research Unit, Pasture Woodlands and Wetlands Research Group, WSL, Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research… CONTINUE READING
