Microorganisms are everywhere. They are inside (and on) us, around us in the environment, in animals, plants and even in space. They form microbial communities (microbiota) in these habitats and have become integral to every facet of life. For World Microbiome Day, the Microbiome family of journals, Microbiome, Animal Microbiome and Environmental Microbiome, have highlighted, through recent publications, some of the many different aspects of life impacted by microbiome research.

Wildlife and conservation
View and submit to Animal Microbiome's collection on Microbiomes in wild animals: In captivity and the field
Much of the world is suffering from the polluting impacts of human activities. Microbial communities could provide the solution to clearing up the environmental pollutants. Environmental Microbiome is therefore running a special collection Bioremediation and microbiomes to bring together articles that address bioremediation of environments.
At the Extreme
Microbial communities have the extraordinary ability to survive and thrive in extreme environmental conditions. Animal Microbiome, Environmental Microbiome and Microbiome are all participating in a cross-journal collection looking at Life at the extreme.
Aeronautics and space
View our collection on Aeronautics and space microbiomes for a range of our articles on space microbiomes. You can submit to the collection via Microbiome or Environmental Microbiome.
