Understanding Microbial Communities; Function, Structure and Dynamics

Co-author: James I. Prosser (University of Aberdeen)

Since their discovery a decade ago, the activities of ammonia oxidising archaea (AOA) in soil (and other environments) are now recognised as a central component to the cycling of reactive nitrogen. However, despite being considered functionally analogous to their bacterial counterparts (AOB), current work indicates that archaeal-specific adaptations may separate the ecological niches of AOA and AOB to such an extent that any interactions may not actually be competitive, and hint at a more complex microbial network of interactions cycling nitrogen in soil.
