Atlas français des bactéries du sol

fr Volume 41

Published on 06 December 2018

Soils are home to entire communities of living organisms, whose microscopic size and incredible profusion exceed the limits of our perceptions: a single gram of soil can contain millions of fungi and billions of bacteria, this representing between 100,000 and one million different bacterial species! Nothing, in our everyday environment, except maybe a clear, starry, night sky, prepares us to such abundance and diversity.
Scientists specialised in microbial ecology from the ‘Agroecology’ mixed research unit of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté INRA research institute carried out an inventory of the bacterial communities found in French soils. Using state-of-the-art technologies in DNA sequencing, the project led to the publication of this atlas, which presents a detailed overview of these bacterial communities while at the same time calling our attention to their importance for the quality and fertility of soils.
This is a book with no equivalent as to its subject and its innovative presentation, which helps us to grasp the complex world of soil bacteria.
