Drought-resistant fungi control soil organic matter decomposition and its response to temperature

  title={Drought-resistant fungi control soil organic matter decomposition and its response to temperature},
  • Published 2011
Microbial-mediated decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) ultimately makes a considerable contribution to soil respiration, which is typically the main source of CO2 arising from terrestrial ecosystems. Despite this central role in the decomposition of SOM, few studies have been conducted on how climate change may affect the soil microbial community and, furthermore, on how possible climate-change induced alterations in the ecology of microbial communities may affect soil CO2 emissions… CONTINUE READING
