Microbial ecology

Microbial ecology underpins much of our cross-disciplinary research including projects ranging from the response of polar fungal communities to climate change, through to understanding the microbial controls on bulk and trace elements in natural and engineered environments. This latter work links to longstanding interests in the ecology and bioremediation of highly contaminated land and water. In all our studies we use traditional microbiological techniques combined with cutting edge genomic, post-genomic and imaging approaches.
