Charcoal as a habitat for microbes and its effect on the microbial community of the underlying humus
It is suggested that charcoal from burning can support microbial communities, which are small in size but have a higher specific growth rate than those of the humus, and also ActC.
MICROBIAL COMMUNITY STRUCTURE AND pH RESPONSE IN RELATION TO SOIL ORGANIC MATTER QUALITY IN WOOD-ASH FERTILIZED, CLEAR-CUT OR BURNED CONIFEROUS FOREST SOILS

Phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) analysis revealed a gradual change in soil microbial communities along both pollution gradients, and most of the individual PLFAs changed similarly to metal pollution at both sites.

ABSTRACT The main objectives of this study were to uncover the pathways used for methanogenesis in three different boreal peatland ecosystems and to describe the methanogenic populations involved.…
Ecosystem properties and microbial community changes in primary succession on a glacier forefront
This study suggests that during the early stages of succession the microbial community cannot incorporate all the added substrate into its biomass, but rapidly increases its respiration, and the later-stage microbial community remains in an “energy-saving state,” accumulating C to its biomass.

The study revealed a change of the methanogen populations with depth, which was related to Methanomicrobiales and Methanosarcinales via the Rice Cluster-I.

It is found that the activity of methane-oxidizing bacteria provides not only carbon but also nitrogen to peat mosses and, thus, contributes to carbon and nitrogen accumulation in peatlands, which store approximately one-third of the global soil carbon pool.
Effects of short‐ and long‐term water‐level drawdown on the populations and activity of aerobic decomposers in a boreal peatland
We analysed the response of microbial communities, characterized by phospholipid fatty acids (PLFAs), to changing hydrological conditions at sites with different nutrient levels in a southern boreal…

Mires forming an ecohydrological gradient from nutrient-rich, groundwater-fed mesotrophic and oligotrophic fens to a nutrient-poor ombrotrophic bog were studied by comparing potential methane (CH(4))…
