[B-GM22] Microbial ecology in earth and planetary sciences

Tue. May 26, 2015 6:15 PM - 7:30 PM Convention Hall (2F)

Convener:*Michinari Sunamura(University of Tokyo Dept. of Earth & Planetary Science), Ken Takai(Extremobiosphere Research Center, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science & Technology), Keisuke Koba(Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology), Natsuko Hamamura(Ehime University)

Microbes have exerted the great influences on earth environments through the history of earth. Microbial ecology is a study of interaction between microbes and surrounding environments. Research target of Microbial ecology covers most of environments on the earth and planet, e.g. soil, subsurface, subseafloor, ocean, river, lake, air, space, volcano, fault and earthquake, minerals, and more. In this session , we aim to exchange informations of microbial distribution, population dynamics, function, effect on material cycles between microbial ecologist and earth&planetary scientist. We hope effective discussion from interdisciplinary approaches in this session.
