Aims: understanding the role of microbial processes in material and energy fluxes of river-floodplain systems and other inland waters, and the ecological relevance of bacterial and viral diversity in freshwater habitats. Further, understanding the origin, quality and bioreactivity of dissolved organic matter (DOM), and of suspended particulate matter and its role as microhabitats for bacteria and viruses. We strongly emphasize the necessity of integrating virus ecology into large river ecology.
