About this book

The Brazilian Microbiome covers terrestrial, aquatic and host-associated microbiomes unveiling biological and technical aspects of research. Brazil is recognized as one of the most mega-diverse countries, but its microbial functional and taxonomic diversity is still considered unexplored. Several groups are studying microbial biodiversity in various environments such as oceanic islands, seas and oceans, mangroves, or microorganisms that interact with animals, plants, and other organisms.
