The Department/Section of Microbial Ecology was established in 1972 as an independent research unit specializing in ecological aspects of microbial life and the unit was in this year physically moved from the Department of Microbiology to a newly established Department of Ecology at Lund University. Microbial ecology research in Lund was initiated by Docent Borje Noren (1919-1983) who in 1960 became the leader of a group of students and researche

Microbial Ecology
Netherlands

The study of microbial ecology can help us improve our lives via the use of microbes in environmental restoration, food production, bioengineering of useful products such as antibiotics, food supplements, and chemicals. The study of these bizarre and diverse creatures that are everywhere yet nowhere to be seen is fascinating and a pursuit that appeals to the curiousity and playfulness in us.
