Original articles are published on fundamental aspects of the ecology of all sorts of micro-organisms in natural soil, air or aquatic environments, or in artificial or managed environments.
Issues for Jan.-Dec. 1985 called v. 31, no. 1-no. 6 in continuation of the vol. numbering of FEMS microbiology letters but constitute E1/1-E1/6.
Vols. for l986- also carry vol. numbering continuous with FEMS microbiology letters and FEMS microbiology reviews.
Please note that the official reference to for instance Vol 1/1 of FEMS Microbiol. Ecology should be: (1985) FEMS Microbiol. Ecology Vol 31/1. Thus the correct citation is that given on the PDF file for the article and NOT that given with the Abstract.
