About the Collection

Environmental Microbiome is calling for submissions to our Collection on 'Adaptation of microbial communities to climate change.'

Climate change is one of the most critical challenges of our time, with far-reaching impacts on ecosystems and biodiversity. Microbial communities play a pivotal role in maintaining ecological balance and ecosystem function. This collection will explore how microbial communities respond, evolve, and adapt to changing climatic conditions. Topics of interest include but are not limited to, the impact of rising temperatures, altered precipitation patterns, and extreme weather events of microbial diversity, distribution, and metabolic processes. Additionally, studies investigating the role of microbial communities in mediating climate change effects such as carbon cycling, greenhouse gas emissions, and biogeochemical interactions are also welcome.

By bringing together cutting-edge research in this field, this collection aims to enhance our understanding of the intricate relationships between microbial communities and climate change, providing invaluable insights for conservation and management of ecosystems under unprecedented environmental challenges.
