The Tibetan Plateau reacts particularly sensitively to possible effects of climate change. Approximately two thirds of the total area is affected by permafrost. To get a better understanding of the role of permafrost on soil organic carbon pools and stocks, investigations were carried out including both discontinuous (site Huashixia, HUA) and continuous(More)
In this study, we assessed the abundance and diversity of bacterial communities by 16S rRNA gene-based qPCR and T-RFLP across different soil depths of three sites located on the Tibetan Plateau which are affected by discontinuous permafrost or characterized as seasonally frozen ground. Our data indicates that bacterial community structure was significantly(More)
