Habitat Structure and Microbial Interactions

Are the macro-ecological theories governing how species, populations, and communities interact the same at the micro scale?

The spatial structure of a habitat can influence microbial community assembly and secondary metabolisms. I am particularly interested in communities of the gut microbiome to mine for new therapeutics that result from microbial interactions and those of Early Earth analogs, like stromatolites, to understand the chemical evolution of microbial interactions.
