Special Issue "Marine Viruses 2016"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2017).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: marine viral ecology; phage-host interactions
Interests: Aquatic viral ecology, Marine microbiology, mortality, phytoplankton-host interactions
The research effort, publication rate and scientific community within the field of marine viruses have been growing rapidly the past decade and viruses are now known to play key roles in microbial population dynamics, diversity and evolution as well as biogeochemical cycling.
The aim of this special issue is to highlight the progress in our understanding of the role of viruses in the marine environment by presenting novel research on the ecology, distribution and diversity of marine viruses and the influence of virus-host interactions on e.g. mortality, element cycling and evolution of marine microbial communities.
