Bergey's Manual Trust symposium: Linking microbial systematics and ecology (cont)

09 July 2019 11:30 - 12:30

Tremendous advancements have been made lately in the field of microbial ecology. The results of ecological studies, however, are not always put into a meaningful taxonomic framework. This session, co-sponsored by Bergey's Manual Trust, will feature research that has effectively connected microbial ecology, physiology, and systematics. Talks will include presentations on discoveries of novel physiologies with new or poorly understood groups of Bacteria or Archaea or presentations that unite the ecology of novel high-level taxa or difficult-to-grow taxa with systematics. The specific focus will be made on studies that improved our understanding of the ecology of previously uncultured microorganisms.
