The chapter begins with a discussion of symbiotic relationships, and examples of each type of relationship are presented. This chapter then considers nutrient cycling and the roles of microorganisms in ecosystems. The chapter also includes a discussion of extreme environments and concludes with a discussion of the methods used in microbial ecology.
