Topical Collection "Feature Papers in Environmental Microbiology"
As described in the title, this Topical Collection, Feature Papers in Environmental Microbiology, aims to collect high quality research articles, short communications, and review articles in all the fields of environmental microbiology. As the aim of this Topical Collection is to illustrate, through selected works, the frontier research in environmental microbiology, we encourage the editorial board members of the Environmental Microbiology Section of Microorganisms to contribute papers reflecting the latest progress in their research field, or to invite relevant experts and colleagues to do so.
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Structure and function of microbial communities
Microbial community genetics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics
Microbial population biology
Biogeochemical processes (C-, N-, P-, and S-cycles)
Microbial life in extreme environments
Evolutionary processes of microbial communities
Biofilm formation and surfaces of microbes
Metabolic flux analysis and stable isotope probing (DNA, RNA, and protein)
Microbiome biology of environmental habitats (e.g., soil, rhizosphere, or
Microbial treatment—microbial biodegradation, microbial bioremediation,
microbial and waste recycling, microbial pesticide, microbial
fertilizer, and so on
Microbial pollution—pathogenic microorganisms in the environment
(water, soil, air, and food)—microbial metabolism, and environmental pollution
(e.g., microbial toxin), and so on
Microbiological monitoring—testing methods and monitoring techniques

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microorganisms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
