Exploring microbes world is always a variety of exciting topics. Since the concept of âmicrobial loopâ was first formulated, a plethora of studies have tried to look inside the black box of the microscopic world of microorganisms and to investigate the wide diversity of its members (virus, bacteria, Archaea, protists). Addressing our attention to microbes inhabiting aquatic ecosystems, seminal work has been performed in the last decades by many aquatic microbial ecologists, the central role of microorganisms as decomposizers, mineralizers and producers of organic matter has been fully recognized. Microorganisms affect the chemistry and productivity of aquatic environments thanks to their by their metabolic activities, both productive and degradative; they are the major actors in the biogeochemical fluxes of elements but the mechanisms by which these reactions proceed, there in situ transformation rates and quantitative significance to element cycling are still poorly understood.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
