Soil organic matter, total nitrogen and pH:Microbial composition and function across an old-field chronosequence

Lauren Cline
As mediators of biogeochemical cycles, understanding the ecological forces structuring soil microbial communities is of ecosystem-level significance. Due to gradual shifts in plant species composition and litter addition through time, succession can be used as a model to understand how plant communities shape microbial community composition and function in soil. Numerous studies have investigated microbial biomass and diversity along successional gradients, yet few have quantified changes in microbial communities. Using the established successional dynamics experiment...
