The Limnomikrobiologie ( ancient Greek λίμνη limne , German , lake ' ) studied the degradation of organic matter, microbial metabolism in the waters and the trophic importance of microorganisms for consumers (Schwoerbel, 1999).

Aquatic fungi also play a role in the microbiological metabolism, as do heterotrophic flagellates and ciliates (Bärlocher & Kendrick, 1974).

The most important object of investigation in limnomicrobiology, however, is the bacterio and virioplankton of inland waters.
