Abstract
The field of microbial individual-based ecology, or µ IBE ( Kreft et al., 2013 ), is grounded in the notion that to truly understand the interactions of micr oorganisms with their biotic and abiotic environment, one cannot ignore the scales at which s uch interactions occur. The collection and interpretation of data along these scales (from very smal l spatial dimensions to very large population sizes) remains a major challenge. Embracing the id ea that “progress in science depends on new tec...
