The soil microbial food web revisited with metatranscriptomics - predatory Myxobacteria as keystone taxon? [article]

Sebastian Petters, Andrea Soellinger, Mia Maria Bengtsson, Tim Urich
2018 bioRxiv   pre-print
Trophic interactions in the microbial food web of soils are crucial for nutrient and carbon cycling. Traditionally, protozoa are considered the major micropredators of bacteria in soil.  ...  In all soils, Myxobacteria comprised a significant proportion from 4 to 19% of prokaryotic 16S rRNA transcripts and more than 60% of all bacterivores in most soils.  ...  Using this approach, we have recently created a first molecular census of active protists in soils .  ...
