Join us for an enlightening webinar that explores the vibrant world of soil and its microscopic inhabitants. Soil microorganisms are the driving force behind elemental biogeochemical cycling, connecting above- and below-ground ecosystems. By delving into the microbial ecology of soils, we can uncover answers to pressing questions that advance our understanding of ecological principles and address important topics such as anthropogenic effects and ecosystem productivity.
Originally aired on November 12th, 2020, this webinar brings together esteemed authors of recent papers published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology. Guided by Max Häggblom, Editor-in-Chief of FEMS Microbiology Ecology, our speakers will provide unique insights into their groundbreaking research:
Speaker 1: Michael E Van Nuland from the Department of Biology at Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA.
Paper: “Warming and disturbance alter soil microbiome diversity and function in a northern forest ecotone” published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology, 2020.
Speaker 2: Amanda Black from the Bio-Protection Research Centre at Lincoln University, Lincoln, New Zealand.
Paper: “Soil microbial diversity in adjacent forest systems – contrasting native, old growth kauri forest with exotic pine plantation forest” published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology, 2020.
Speaker 3: Flemming Ekelund from the Department of Biology at the University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Paper: “Aerobic decomposition of organic matter in subarctic soil is constrained by input availability rather than microbial biomass” published in FEMS Microbiology Ecology, 2020.
By attending this webinar, you will gain valuable insights into the complex and dynamic world of soil microbial ecology. Discover the profound impact of environmental factors, disturbances, and land-use changes on soil microbiomes and their functions. Understand how these interactions shape elemental biogeochemical cycles and influence the productivity of ecosystems. Join us in uncovering the secrets of soil microorganisms and their practical implications for various applied fields.
