Correct vocabulary of microbiome research, microbiome during mosquito development, microbes on Granada’s Royal Chapel stone, and microbes in Atacama desert.

General microbiome

About the proper use of “16S”, “microbiome”, and “microbiota”, and why “microflora” is not correct. Note Elies: But “microbiota” is a plant too!
