Over the last 100 years, the study of soil microbiology has revealed that a wide array of inherent biochemical abilities exist in each gram of soil. The study of microorganisms was hampered for many years by our inability to separate the cells from their growth environment. This makes the study of soil ecology unique because few other areas of ecological investigation have such difficulty in separating the studied organisms from their habitat. Therefore, the structure and function of soil reflects the interrelatedness of the organism and their habitat. Keywords: soil microbiology; microorganisms; aerobic; anaerobic; biodegradation; microbial community; biochemical processing; soil ecology
