Plant litter decomposition is a process enabling biogeochemical cycles closing in ecosystems, and decomposition in forests constitutes the largest part of this process taking place in terrestrial biomes. Microbial communities during litter decomposition were studied mainly with low-throughput techniques not allowing detailed insight, particularly into coniferous litter, as it is more difficult to obtain high quality DNA required for analyses. Motivated by these problems, we analyzed archaeal… Expand

Rapid microbial community evolution in initial Carex litter decomposition stages in Bayinbuluk alpine wetland during the freeze–thaw period
TLDR
The results suggest that the bacterial community structures of Carex and forest litter during initial decomposition stages may be similar but that their fungal community structures may differ substantially. Expand
Litter composition has stronger influence on the structure of soil fungal than bacterial communities
TLDR
The findings of this study show that litter composition has a stronger influence on the composition of fungal than bacterial communities, and suggest that some key fungal taxa have greater advantage in degrading relatively resistant plant material thereby supporting the growth of other bacterial and fungalTaxa through release of simple, more degradable, compounds. Expand
Differences in substrate use linked to divergent carbon flow during litter decomposition.
TLDR
Feature-traits suggested that divergent patterns of C flow may be driven in part by differences in organism interactions that affect DOC abundance directly or indirectly by controlling community structure. Expand
Shifts on archaeal community structure in pure and mixed Eucalyptus grandis and Acacia mangium plantations
TLDR
Analysis of the archaeal community provides novel insights into the structure and function of archaea in pure and mixed forest systems, but highlights that young mixed plantations exert a low effect on soil community structure. Expand
Fungal Communities on Standing Litter Are Structured by Moisture Type and Constrain Decomposition in a Hyper-Arid Grassland
TLDR
Fungal communities differed between the two moisture regimes with environment having a considerably stronger effect on community composition than did stage of decomposition, contributing to growing literature demonstrating that as climate change alters the frequency, magnitude and type of moisture events in arid ecosystems, litter decomposition rates may be altered and constrained by the composition of existing decomposer communities. Expand
Effects of initial microbial biomass abundance on respiration during pine litter decomposition
TLDR
The results suggest that the initial abundance of microbial biomass on litter is a weak driver of C flux from litter decomposition over long timescales (months to years) when litter communities have equal nutrient availability. Expand
Effects of initial microbial biomass abundance on respiration during pine litter decomposition
TLDR
The results suggest that the initial abundance of microbial biomass on litter is a weak driver of C flux from litter decomposition over long timescales (months to years) when litter communities have equal nutrient availability. Expand
Volatilome of Aleppo Pine litter over decomposition process
TLDR
The aim of this study was to quantitatively and qualitatively characterize BVOC emissions from Pinus halepensis litter, one of the major Mediterranean conifer species, over a 15‐month litter decomposition experiment and contribute to better understand the dynamics and sources of BV OC emission in Mediterranean pine forests. Expand
Distinct microbial communities alter litter decomposition rates in a fertilized coastal plain wetland
Abstract Human activities have led to increased deposition of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) into soils. Nutrient enrichment of soils is known to increase plant biomass and rates of microbial litterExpand
Enzymatic activity of soils and soil organic matter stabilization as an effect of components released from the decomposition of litter
Abstract The processes associated with litter decomposition are closely related to nutrient circulation in forest ecosystems. This study attempted to determine the role of nutrients, especially C andExpand

Life in leaf litter: novel insights into community dynamics of bacteria and fungi during litter decomposition
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the complex litter decay is the result of a dynamic cross‐kingdom functional succession in decomposing leaf litter of temperate beech forest, with a consistent and highly significant correlation between bacterial richness and fungal richness and community structure. Expand
Bacterial succession on decomposing leaf litter exhibits a specific occurrence pattern of cellulolytic taxa and potential decomposers of fungal mycelia.
TLDR
The bacterial community dynamics reflects changes in the availability of possible resources either of the plant or microbial origin, especially later in the decomposition process when its abundance increases. Expand
Fungal community on decomposing leaf litter undergoes rapid successional changes
TLDR
The results indicate that litter decomposition is a highly complex process mediated by various fungal taxa. Expand
Seasonal dynamics of fungal communities in a temperate oak forest soil.
TLDR
The litter community exhibited more profound seasonal changes than did the community in the deeper horizons, and litter decomposition and phytosynthate allocation represent important factors contributing to the observed variations. Expand
Active and total microbial communities in forest soil are largely different and highly stratified during decomposition
TLDR
It is shown that low-abundance species make an important contribution to decomposition processes in soils, and cellulose decomposition is mediated by highly diverse fungal populations largely distinct between soil horizons. Expand
Cellulose utilization in forest litter and soil: identification of bacterial and fungal decomposers.
TLDR
Several bacteria and fungi demonstrated here to derive their carbon from cellulose were previously not recognized as cellulolytic, and was preferentially accumulated in the fungal biomass and cellulose induced fungal proliferation. Expand
Who is who in litter decomposition? Metaproteomics reveals major microbial players and their biogeochemical functions
TLDR
Fungi were found to be the main producers of extracellular hydrolytic enzymes, with no bacterial hydrolases being detected by the metaproteomics approach, providing evidence that the litter nutrient content and the stoichiometry of C:N:P affect the decomposer community structure and activity. Expand
Microbial activity in forest soil reflects the changes in ecosystem properties between summer and winter.
TLDR
The activity of the abundant ectomycorrhizal fungi was reduced in winter, which indicates that plant photosynthetic production was likely one of the major drivers of changes in the functioning of microbial communities in this coniferous forest. Expand
Dynamics and stratification of bacteria and fungi in the organic layers of a scots pine forest soil
TLDR
The results indicate the existence of an environmental stress factor affecting the abundance of fungi in the second phase of decomposition and high atmospheric nitrogen deposition is discussed as a prime factor to explain low fungal biomass and the relatively short lengths of fungal hyphae in some of the forest soil layers under study.
