About this Research Topic
The proposed Research Topic will deal with 'Microorganisms Impacts on Consumption of Atmospheric Trace Gases'. Our intention is to get a topical view on the impact of microorganisms on uptake of atmospheric trace gases in diverse ecosystems, based on examples that reflect the broad range of physiological groups that are involved. We welcome contributions from the field of environmental microbiology and related fields that address structural and ecophysiological aspects of microbial communities or provide insight into (eco)physiological model organisms of ecosystems consuming atmospheric trace gases. We aim at covering a broad range of methodological approaches and encourage contributions that employ proteomics and next generation sequencing technologies, culture-based physiological methods, stable isotope probing techniques, multivariate statistics, and cross disciplinary approaches. Original research articles, perspectives, and reviews are welcomed. Contributions that address little investigated atmospheric gases in regard to microbial consumption will be highly appreciated.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
