Jaeschke, Andrea; Ziegler, Martin; Hopmans, Ellen C.; Reichart, Gert‐Jan; Lourens, Lucas J.; Schouten, Stefan; Sinninghe Damsté, Jaap S.;

Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) has been recognized as an important process converting fixed nitrogen to N2 in many marine environments, thereby having a major impact on the present‐day marine nitrogen cycle. However, essentially nothing is known about the import... View more
