Abstract
Climate change is one of the most important and probable aspects influencing the stability of human societies. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from natural or human-made freshwater ecosystems are linked to the anaerobic microbial activity (MA) and influence the global GHG emissions and dynamics. Thus, better tools regarding the characterization of both the MA and biomass within ecosystems is of capital importance to deal with climate change. However, MA and biomass assessment methodologies are co...
