New 'atlas' reveals Earth's microscopic communities

Vast database can help advance innovation in agriculture, energy, health

By Sierra Sarkis, NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory

The planet is home to a vast number of microscopic living organisms - plants, animals, and bacteria- found from deep sea volcanoes to the highest mountain peaks. These organisms too small to be seen by the naked eye affect both human health and the health of the world’s ecosystems. Despite their centrality to life on Earth, scientists have a limited understanding of their fundamental structure.
