In a commentary wrote together with Sairah Malkin from the University of Maryland, we discuss a recent paper by Scholz et al. (2021) investigating the association between the rhizospheres of aquatic vegetation and cable bacteria.
We assessed the impact of zebra mussels on Nitrogen processes in laboratory incubations designed to discern the impact of the microbiome and to quantitatively assess their relevance at the benthic scale.
We demonstrate the importance of diazotrophs in sustaining primary productivity of the invasive marine plant Halophila stipulacea.
Using omics and stable isotopes, we show that the sulfur-oxidizing symbionts of invertebrate animals are also capable of nitrogen fixation.
