AME SPECIAL 4


Progress and perspectives in aquatic microbial ecology: Highlights of the SAME 11, Piran, Slovenia, 2009

Editor: Paul A. del Giorgio

The SAME (Symposium on Aquatic Microbial Ecology) series is a prime space for discussion and interaction for the international aquatic microbial community. SAME 11 was hosted by the Marine Biology Station in Piran, Slovenia, from August 30 to September 4, 2009, and brought together 210 scientists from over 30 countries. This AME SPECIAL, based on the SAME 11, is composed of papers contributed by the invited plenary speakers of the symposium. It aims to provide readers with a synthesis and critical analysis of key contemporary issues in aquatic microbial ecology, highlighting new discoveries and paradigm shifts and cutting-edge technical developments, and providing specific examples of current ecological problems. Topics covered include microbial effects of ocean acidification, the molecular basis of microbial N cycling, the challenges of interpreting massive amounts of sequencing data, the role of phosphorus in the functioning of microbial systems, and bacterial-zooplankton interactions.

We are pleased to make the online version of this AME SPECIAL available with Open Access.
