Forefields of two receding glaciers were sampled along either a 150 or 200 m long transect at identical spatial intervals for assessment of soil microbial activity and community diversity trends. The forefields belonged to the Dammaglacier (forefield area is 157 ha, 2000 m above sea level) and Rotfirnglacier (100 ha, 2200 m) and at the time of sampling were receding at an estimated rate of 8 and 10 m yr(-1) over the past 5 years, respectively. Direct counting of bacteria (DAPI staining… CONTINUE READING
