Comparative metaproteomics analyzes variations of the entire range of functions expressed by microorganisms inhabiting one specific ecosystem. Two strategies can be used to study the impact of environmental changes on microbial communities. Metaproteomics can be performed on complex natural communities or simplified artificial assemblages. In this chapter, we will discuss the past and future trends of the metaproteomics workflow as well as the advantages and limitations of each approach with a special focus on aquatic ecosystems.
