Microbial ecosystem - the often forgotten system. I like the earth's critical zone concept. Earth's critical zone is the near surface environment in which complex interactions involving rock, soil, water, air, and living organisms regulate the natural habitat and determine the availability of life-sustaining goods and services. Microbes play an indispensible role in sustaining the earth's critical zone.

Where are the microbes in Lanscape Ecology?

Spatial processes significantly shapes biodiversity, including that of microbes. However, while the impact of these processes on plants and plants has been studied for many decades, landscape ecology principles have not been equally applied to microorganisms, painting an incomplete picture of our understanding of Landscape Ecology. It is time we started applying these principles to microbes too.

Covid-19, settlement patterns, topography

Hi Yazidhi, Rural areas in Africa should be spared from the rapid spread of covid-19 because of the dispersed settlement patterns. However, social distancing is still important as villagers usually meet at market places, water collection points and at traditional functions.

Landscape Ecology and COVID-19

Landscapes inhabit people who are being affected by COVID-19. Is there a relationship between landscape typology and cases of COVID-19?

How can we approach this question?
