Lieferbar innerhalb 1 - 2 Wochen. Beschreibung The most important feature of the modern synthetic theory of evolution is its foundation upon a great variety of biological disciplines. I consider such parallels to be important for two reasons. First, they serve to emphasize that however diverse life may be, there are common themes at the ecological level not to mention other levels.
Second, research done with either microbes or macroorganisms has implications which transcend a particular field of study. Your points will be added to your account once your order is shipped.

A COMPARISON OF TAXON CO‐OCCURRENCE PATTERNS FOR MACRO‐ AND MICROORGANISMS
Drawing on examples from the biology of microorganisms and macroorganisms, this textbook provides a much-needed interdisciplinary approach to ecology. The focus is the individual organism and comparisons are made along six axes: genetic variation, nutritional mode, size, growth, life cycle, and influence of the environment. When it was published in , the first edition of Comparative Ecology of Microorganisms and Macroorganisms was unique in its attempt to clearly compare fundamental ecology across the gamut of size. The explosion of molecular biology and the application of its techniques to microbiology and organismal biology have particularly demonstrated the need for interdisciplinary understanding.
This updated and expanded edition remains unique. Among the completely updated topics in the book are phylogenetic systematics, search algorithms and optimal foraging theory, comparative metabolism, the origins of life and evolution of multicellularity, and the evolution of life cycles. It is a thoughtful attempt to integrate ideas from, and develop common themes for, two fields of ecology that should not have become fragmented.

Abstract Recent analyses revealed that most of the biodiversity observed in marine microbial communities is represented by organisms with low abundance but, nonetheless essential for ecosystem dynamics and processes across both temporal and spatial scales.
Keywords: microbial communities, microbial biodiversity, rare biosphere, microbiota, macroorganism—microbe interactions, dispersal, metacommunity, gut microbiota. Microbial Diversity in Marine Environments The estimation of marine bacterial diversity has markedly increased in resolution during the last decade with the advent of high throughput sequencing technologies Sunagawa et al.
Review of the Main Processes Regulating Marine Microbial Diversity The composition and structure of marine microbial communities are controlled by several factors acting simultaneously at different temporal and spatial scales Fuhrman et al. Physical Transport and Large-scale Distribution The dispersal of free-living microbes across the ocean can result from different processes acting at different scales. The Overlooked Role of Macroorganisms Until recently, the role played by macroorganisms in the control of microbial diversity has been largely ignored in the literature Mihaljevic, ; Saleem, ; Li et al.
Macroorganisms Host Highly Diverse Microbial Communities The number of studies on the diversity of microbial communities associated with marine macroorganisms has increased exponentially during the last 5 years but there is surprisingly no synthesis considering various phyla. Open in a separate window. Macroorganisms as Sources of Rare Taxa for Seawater Microbial Communities Several studies have shown that the composition of seawater and sediment microbial communities may greatly differ from those associated to macroorganisms sponges: Dupont et al.
Macroorganism Digestive Tracts Increase the Relative Abundance of Transient and Rare Seawater OTUs The digestive tracts of different marine animals are shown to make favorable habitats for transient and rare seawater bacteria. Macroorganisms as Dissemination Vectors for Marine Microbes By definition, microbial plankton dispersal depends on the movement of water masses.
Sustaining the Rare Rationale and Hypotheses When taken together, empirical evidences support the argument that macroorganisms play a so far overlooked role in the dynamics and diversity of seawater microbial communities across scales. Conclusion and Future Directions Several processes have been proposed to explain the maintenance of the rare biosphere in marine microbial communities, or the large geographic distribution of organisms with small dispersal abilities. Author Contributions MT initiated the study.
