Fungal community composition and metabolism under elevated CO2 and O3

  title={Fungal community composition and metabolism under elevated CO2 and O3},
  author={Haegeun Chung and Donald R. Zak and Erik A. Lilleskov},
Atmospheric CO2 and O3 concentrations are increasing due to human activity and both trace gases have the potential to alter C cycling in forest ecosystems. Because soil microorganisms depend on plant litter as a source of energy for metabolism, changes in the amount or the biochemistry of plant litter produced under elevated CO2 and O3 could alter microbial community function and composition. Previously, we have observed that elevated CO2 increased the microbial metabolism of cellulose and… CONTINUE READING
