    Once again our co-editors-in-chief have selected 5 great articles that represent what the ISME Journal is all about. Microbial ecology is a booming science, gaining relevance across a range of topics affecting our world and the people who live in it, and the ISME Journal strives to reflect the diverse and multidisciplinary developments in the field. This compilation of manuscripts seeks to reflect this diversity and relevance; from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the human microbiome to soil fungi, litter decomposition and greenhouse gas emissions. We hope you enjoy reading these articles as much as we have!

    To highlight aspects of the importance of microorganisms for our health and the environment, the ISME13 Symposium (August 22-27, 2010, Seattle, WA, USA) invited leading experts to provide plenary lectures on current topics in microbial ecology. The plenary lecturers were also invited to contribute commentaries to the ISME Journal that reflect the content of their lectures. The commentary topics include discussions at the microscopic scale, such as biofilms, mycorrhizae and ecological strategies of big sulfur bacteria, to macroscale discussions of impacts of a changing climate on the microbial communities in oceans and the Arctic. Processes of interest include bacterial and archaeal contributions to ammonia oxidation as well as model systems to study host microbe interactions in the gut. In summary, this unique collection of commentaries describes examples of current trends in the field of microbial ecology and provides important guidance for future research.

    In the past decade, global climate change has come to the forefront of the political and social agenda owing to the growing realization that the Earth's resources are being used in an unsustainable fashion. To highlight the central role of microbial processes in sustainable development, Nature Reviews MicrobiologyandThe ISME Journalpresent a specially commissioned set of articles that highlight the importance of microorganisms in climatic processes and research the generation of new energy sources.
