This investigation is designed to understand the processes and mechanisms involved in the succession of microbial communities isolated fro Hot Lake. Succession is both a natural seasonal process as well as a response to disturbance. We want to understand the general principles that are involved in this process, specifically which species drive the succession process and what roles the individual species play both early and late in succession. The influence of nutrition and environmental factors (e.g. light, temperature, salt, etc) in succession will be exored as well.
