Advanced molecular analyses indicate that there is still unexplored microbial diversity to be mined in ecosystems. Information revealed through microbial diversity measurements based on genetic variability, population size, distribution and function of targeted species within microbial communities can now bring about a new level of understanding of the interactions in microbial ecosystems. The availability of such information is also crucial in the design of sustainable environmental strategies.
Diversity journal dedicates a special issue to the Genetic and functional diversity of microorganisms to explore these aspects. I look forward to your contribution to make it a successful collection of papers.
