The re-emergence of large blooms of benthic filamentous algae in the lower Great Lakes during the late 1990s and early 2000s seemed to run counter to evidence of ecosystem recovery from eutrophication after point-source phosphorus controls were enacted under the Great Lakes under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

Sustainably producing enough food for the world's growing population is one of this century’s defining challenges. Innovative solutions are needed to increase productivity without further degrading agricultural lands or adversely affecting local and global ecosystems. One promising avenue lies in understanding and managing the soil microbiome, which collectively provides critical ecosystem services that underpin both productivity and sustainability. Management practices that alter the soil environment also alter the soil microbiome.
