The exchange of chemical compounds is central to the interactions of microalgae with other microorganisms. Although foundational for many food webs, these interactions have been poorly studied compared with higher plant-microbe interactions. Emerging insights have begun to reveal how these interactions and the participating chemical compounds shape microbial communities and broadly impact biogeochemical processes.
