Microbial Diversity and Activity along the Forefields of Two Receding Glaciers


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… (More)
