Marine Ecology

Sustaining microbial biodiversity:

Microorganisms in the sea are a huge treasure trove. Their significance for the functioning of ecosystems is often still unknown. The potential for industrial applications, for example in medicine or food production, can currently only be estimated to a limited extent. This makes it all the more important to preserve and intensify research into the diversity of microorganisms in the ocean.
