Abundance and Diversity of Bacterial, Archaeal, and Fungal Communities Along an Altitudinal Gradient in Alpine Forest Soils: What Are the Driving Factors?
Shifts in soil microbial communities over altitudinal gradients and the driving factors are poorly studied. Their elucidation is indispensable to gain a comprehensive understanding of the response ofExpand

Seasonal soil microbial responses are limited to changes in functionality at two Alpine forest sites differing in altitude and vegetation
The study of soil microbial responses to environmental changes is useful to improve simulation models and mitigation strategies for climate change. We here investigated two Alpine forest sitesExpand

Effect of digestate and fly ash applications on soil functional properties and microbial communities
Abstract Digestate from biogas production contains a significant amount in organic matter and N, whereas fly ash from biomass combustion is rich in P and other nutrients. The use of both, as suitableExpand

Arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization of Sorghum vulgare in presence of root endophytic fungi of Myrtus communis
a b s t r a c t A total of 150 isolates of endophytic fungi were obtained from roots of Myrtus communis grown in the Mediterranean area. Seven different endophytic fungi taxa, all belonging to theExpand

Effect of altitude and season on microbial activity, abundance and community structure in Alpine forest soils.
In the current context of climate change, the study of microbial communities along altitudinal gradients is especially useful. Only few studies considered altitude and season at the same time. WeExpand

Altitudinal, seasonal and interannual shifts in microbial communities and chemical composition of soil organic matter in Alpine forest soils
Abstract The study of soil microbial communities and chemical properties of soil organic matter (SOM) over altitudinal mountain gradients have been regarded as especially useful to better predict andExpand
