Though redundancy may be the case within such broad functional groups as carbon mineralizers (e.g., Schimel 1995), our results support the developing view that diversity is likely to be functionally significant within more narrowly defined functional groups such as the denitrifiers (Conrad 1996, Schimel 1995).
