More than a decade later, after Stoecker moved to the University of Maryland, she passed along a fascination for these organisms to her graduate student, Matt Johnson, who went on to study many forms of mixotrophy
. In 2006, Johnson became a postdoctoral scientist at Rutgers University, where he was introduced to Moeller, an undergraduate at the time who was looking for a research topic for her honors thesis.

They reported that, while N[H.sub.4.sup.+] affinity, mixotrophy
, and pH have been raised as possible sources of niche differentiation between AOA and AOB, no single soil parameter can describe their relative abundance.
