SAME 14: progress and perspectives in aquatic microbial ecology

Progress and perspectives in aquatic microbial ecology: Highlights of the SAME 14, Uppsala, Sweden, 2015

 

The SAME (Symposium on Aquatic Microbial Ecology) series is a prime opportunity for discussion and interaction for the international aquatic microbial community. SAME 14 (also the 2nd EMBO Conference on Aquatic Microbial Ecology) was hosted by the Limnology group of the Department of Ecology and Evolution of the University of Uppsala, and took place in Uppsala, Sweden, from 23–28 August 2015; it brought together around 250 scientists from over 25 countries. As has been the case for previous SAME meetings, Aquatic Microbial Ecology offered the organizers the possibility of developing a special issue that collates the highlights of the meeting. This SAME 14 AME Special will be composed of papers contributed by invited plenary speakers as well as by the recipients of the student and young investigator awards, who will explore a wide range of current topics in aquatic microbial ecology, including population and community dynamics across time and space in water and sediments, microbial biogeography, microdiversity and functional tuning to the environment, microbes and the biogeosphere, and new conceptual and technical approaches and advancements. The Special will be published as a Virtual Special, i.e. papers are published without delay in regular issues and are simultaneously collated on this separate, online Virtual Special contents page, available with Open Access.
