My motivation

Why are there so many species in the ocean? This question raised by Hutchinson in 1961 is still one of my main motivation to study marine microbes. The vast but not endless diversity of microbes still holds many secrets. In times of massive sequencing even up to now still novel species are being discovered. How they master their lives in competition to others in the ocean keeps me fascinated since my study times.
