Special issue information:
#ClimateChange has become part of the common lexicon; however, most discussions tend to focus on macroscopic topics such as atmospheric CO2 levels and extreme weather conditions. Yet, climate change also has an impact at the microscopic level. In the past decade, we have seen the effects of climate change on plant-microbe interactions, which threaten ecological paradigms; nutrient cycling, which has a direct effect on agriculture and food security; and the spread of infectious disease, particularly in the context of novel emerging pathogens.
This special issue will provide a global snapshot of the research that addresses the association between microbiology and climate change.
We would like to invite manuscripts that provide insight into this relationship, including:
