The Evolving Role of H2 in Biogeochemistry The utilization of H2 in metabolic chemistry has remained a common thread throughout the long history of microbial evolution. The increasing complexity of individual organisms and microbial ecosystems has been mirrored by an increasing complexity in the role played by H2 . Successive biochemical advances have often retained and expanded on earlier aspects of H2 metabolism. This continuity and expansion in the microbial utilization of H2 corresponds to a continually evolving role for H2 in the biogeochemistry of the Earth.
