Microbial ecology is study of microbes and their interactions with each other in a given environment. Microbes are the tiniest creatures on Earth, yet despite their very little size, they have a huge impact on our surroundings. Microorganisms, by their ubiquitous, impact the entire biosphere and plays a primary role in regulating biogeochemical systems in virtually all of our planet's surroundings, including some of the most extreme, from frozen environments and acidic lakes, to hydrothermal at the bottom of deepest oceans, and some of the most familiar, such as the human small intestine.

The probability to re-construct complete genomes of the microbial communities from the DNA extracted directly from the environment has been made possible due to the integrated genomics. Collation of the sequenced data within and among the intra-, inter- and natural populations reveals the evolutionary processes that lead to genome diversification. Community genomic datasets also enable subsequent gene expression and proteomic studies to ascertain how resources are invested and functions are distributed among community members.

Functional diversity is a part of biodiversity that generally concerns the range of things that organisms do in communities and ecosystems. Here, we review how functional diversity can describe and predict the impact of organisms on ecosystems and thereby provide a mechanistic link between the two. Critical points in developing predictive measures of functional diversity are the alternate of functional traits with which organisms are distinguished, how the diversity of that trait information is summarized into a measure of functional diversity, and that the measures of functional diversity are proved through quantitative analyses and experimental tests. There is a vast amount of trait information available for plant species and a substantial amount for animals.

Fresh water is naturally occurring water on the Earth's surface in ice sheets, ice caps, glaciers, bogs, ponds, lakes, rivers, and underground as groundwater in aquifers and underground streams. Fresh water is normally characterized by having low concentrations of dissolved salts and other total dissolved solids. Freshwater habitats are divided into lentic systems, which are the still waters including ponds, lakes and mires; lotic systems, which are running water; and groundwater which flows in rocks and aquifers.
Microbes are natural and vital members of all aquatic communities, and are the foundation of lake and stream ecology—without them the natural water worlds would not be possible. Fresh-water ecosystems require energy inputs to conserve the organisms within. In lakes and streams, plants and also certain microbes conduct photosynthesis to harvest the Sun's energy. Microbial photosynthesizers include protists (known as algae) and cyanobacteria .

Plant biology is a part of biology and that deals with plant life and plant development. Botany is another name for this field of biology. It covers a wide range of scientific disciplines that study plants. Some of them include structure, growth, reproduction, metabolism, development, diseases, and chemical properties and evolutionary relationships between the different groups. Botany started with tribal endeavor to identify edible, medicinal and poisonous plants, making botany the oldest sciences. From this ancient interest in plants, the scope of botany has increased to include the study of over 550,000 kinds or species of living organisms.
Microorganisms although, are minute, their impact on our nature is immense. this impact is primarily due to their interactions with each other and with environment. The study of microbial ecology can aid us in improving the human life by a through understanding of use of microbes in environmental restoration, food production, and bioengineering of useful products such as antibiotics, food supplements, and chemicals.

Microbes are found everywhere. On daily basis we ingest, inhale, and transport thousands of organisms (i.e., bacterial, viral, protozoal, or parasitic). Most have no ill effects due to protective mechanisms in our body. Humans and animals have “friendly” organisms throughout their bodies that survive as normal flora and colonize a host but do not cause disease. Microbe- Host interactions are the interactions between a microbe (e.g. virus, bacteria) and their host (e.g. humans, plants). Microbe-Host interactions can be described on the population level (virus infections in a human population), on the single-cell level (individual encounters of host and bacteria), on the organismal level (e.g. virus infects host), or on the molecular level (e.g. virus protein binds to receptor on human cell).

A biofilm is gathering of microorganisms in which cells adhere to each other and regularly these phones join to a surface. These follower cells are as often as possible implanted inside a self-delivered grid of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS). Biofilm extracellular polymeric substance, which is likewise alluded to as ooze, is a polymeric aggregation by and large made out of extracellular DNA, proteins, and polysaccharides. Biofilms may shape on living or non-living surfaces and can be pervasive in normal, mechanical and doctor's facility settings. Organisms shape a biofilm because of many elements, which may incorporate cell acknowledgment of particular or non-particular connection destinations on a surface.

Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the utilization of organisms to abstract or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. According to the Cumulated States EPA, bioremediation is a “treatment that utilizes naturally occurring organisms to break down hazardous substances into less toxic or non toxic substances”. Technologies can be generally relegated as in situ or ex situ. In situ bioremediation involves treating the contaminated material at the site, while ex situ involves the abstraction of the contaminated material to be treated elsewhere. Some examples of bioremediation cognate technologies are phytoremediation, bioventing, bioleaching, landfarming, bioreactor, composting, bioaugmentation, rhizofiltration, and biostimulation.

An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or inhibits their magnification. Antimicrobial medicines can be grouped according to the microorganisms they act primarily against. For example, antibiotics are utilized against bacteria and antifungals are utilized against fungi. They can withal be relegated according to their function. Agents that kill microbes are called microbicidal, while those that merely inhibit their magnification are called biostatic. The utilization of antimicrobial medicines to treat infection is kenned as antimicrobial chemotherapy, while the utilization of antimicrobial medicines to obviate infection is kenned as antimicrobial prophylaxis.

Agroecology is the study of ecological processes applied to agricultural engenderment systems. The prefix agro- refers to agriculture. Bringing ecological principles to bear in agroecosystems can suggest novel management approaches that would not otherwise be considered. The term is often used imprecisely and may refer to "a science, a movementor a practice. Agroecologists study a variety of agroecosystems, and the field of agroecology is not associated with any one particular method of farming, whether it be organic, integrated, or conventional; intensive or extensive. Albeit it has much more mundane cerebrating and principles with some of the afore mentioned farming systems.

A biofuel is a fuel that is engendered through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel engendered by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter. Biofuels can be derived directly from plants, or indirectly from agricultural, commercial, domestic, and/or industrial wastes. Renewable biofuels generally involve contemporary carbon fixation, such as those that occur in plants or microalgae through the process of photosynthesis. Other renewable biofuels are made through the utilization or conversion of biomass. This biomass can be converted to convenient energy-containing substances in three different ways: thermal conversion, chemical conversion, and biochemical conversion. This biomass conversion can result in fuel in solid, liquid, or gas form. This incipient biomass can withal be used directly for biofuels.
