Thermal constraints on microbiome structure and functioning
Microbial communities are crucial for carbon cycling in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Yet we lack a general, mechanistic understanding of how complex microbial communities assemble and persist in the face of environmental temperature fluctuations. In this talk I will present ongoing work to tackle this challenging problem.
