Fungal communities as determinants of carbon dynamics in boreal forest soils
Welcome to next week's Ecology Department Tamm Seminar by Julia Kyaschenko postdoc at the department of Ecology.
In boreal forest fungi are pivotal components as drivers of decomposition and nutrient cycling. Rapid development of molecular techniques increases our knowledge of fungal species distribution in different environments. However scaling from small-scale community composition to ecosystem level processes is challenging. High throughput sequencing and enzyme assays were used to investigate how fungal diversity and community composition responded to ecosystem fertility and forest harvesting. Belowground fungal communities were found to be an important components in mediating effects of climate soil fertility and forest management on accumulation of soil organic matter in Swedish boreal region.
