Biogeography of Microorganisms: From Taxonomy to Traits

Principal Investigators:

Brendan J.M. Bohannan, Jessica L. Green, and Ian J. Wright

Microorganisms represent the vast majority of Earth’s biodiversity and they play a crucialrole in nearly every process of environmental importance, yet only recently have we begun to understandthe distribution of microbial life. The field of microbial biogeography has grown enormously in the past 5 years, in large part due to the influence of a previous NCEAS working group. The study of microbialbiogeography initially adopted a taxonomic approach, focusing on sequence signatures to identify groupsof microorganisms, and using these signatures to... more
