On the Ecology of Saprotrophic Fungi and Bacteria in Soil: Biotic and Abiotic Control of Growth Rates
This thesis demonstrates that the temperatures mediated by global climate change will affect the temperature response of microbial growth in a quantitative and predictable manner, making it possible to estimate the effect on microbial temperature sensitivity of future predicted temperature changes.
Temperature-dependent changes in the soil bacterial community in limed and unlimed soil.
Higher temperatures (with higher turnover) led to higher rates of change in both the PLFA pattern and the activity response to temperature, compared with lower temperatures, indicating that changes in thePLFA pattern were mainly due to phenotypic acclimation and not to species replacement.
The role of plant-soil interactions in peatland carbon cycling at a Scottish wind farm
Northern peatlands play an important role in the cycling of carbon (C) globally, and contain up to one third of the world’s soil C despite only covering a small percentage of its land surface
Searching for branched glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraether membrane lipid producing bacteria in soil
Bacterial community composition was characterized by using high-throughput cultivation independent techniques as well as selective cultivation and it was shown that both pH and temperature strongly affected microbial community composition.
Comparison of temperature effects on soil respiration and bacterial and fungal growth rates.
A tendency towards the opposite effect was observed at low temperatures, indicating that fungi were more adapted to low-temperature conditions than bacteria, and at temperatures above 30 degrees C there was an uncoupling between the instantaneous respiration rate and bacterial and fungal activity.

It is shown that the main difference between common temperature relationships used in global models is differences in the assumed temperature adaptation of the soil microbial community.
Use of Phospholipid Fatty Acids To Detect Previous Self-Heating Events in Stored Peat
Not only the duration and temperature during the heating event but also the storage temperature following heating are important for the detection of PLFAs indicating previous self-heating.
Severe drought-induced community tolerance to heat wave. An experimental study on soil microbial processes
PurposeThe purposes of this study were to identify the influence of a severe drought period on the impact of a subsequent heat–drought disturbance on the microbial community of a Mediterranean
The dynamics of aquatic systems (e.g. estuarine systems) are known to facilitate the formation of particle aggregates. These nutrient-rich particulate matter provide suitable substrate for bacteria
Temperature responses of carbon monoxide and hydrogen uptake by vegetated and unvegetated volcanic cinders
Results indicated that plant development during succession did not elicit differences in short-term temperature responses for Bare and Canopy CO uptake, in spite of previously reported differences in CO oxidizer community composition, and differences in average daily and extreme temperatures.


Effects of temperature on the incorporation of leucine and thymidine by bacterioplankton and bacterial isolates
Evidence indicated that the temperature-dependence of Leu:TdR ratios was not a functon of community compositlon, unbalanced growth, non-specific labelling of macromolecules, or substrate limitation, and Leu and TdR incorporation appear to be affected by temperature differently.
The seasonal selection by temperature of heterotrophic bacteria in an intertidal sediment
The seasonal selection by temperature of bacteria in an intertidal sediment was investigated and a temperature adaptation index was calculated for the heterotrophic bacterial population and changes in the value of this index were shown to be correlated with seasonal changes of environmental temperature.
Bacterioplankton growth responses to temperature and chlorophyll variations in estuaries measured by thymidine:leucine incorporation ratio
It is proposed that changes toward less favorable environmental conditions (e.g. reductions in temperature or substrate supply in temperate estuaries) might reduce bacterial protein and DNA synthesis rates simultaneously, which might lead to lower Leu:TdR ratios.
Thymidine, leucine and acetate incorporation into soil bacterial assemblages at different temperatures
The fact that the temperature relationships for soil bacterial communities appeared to follow the square root model will facilitate comparisons of such relationships between different soils, as well as recalculation of data to actual field temperatures.
Bacterial activity in a forest soil after soil heating and organic amendments measured by the thymidine and leucine incorporation techniques
Abstract The effects of soil heating (200°C, 1 h) and organic amendments (straw and poultry manure) on bacterial activity in a forest soil were studied in a laboratory experiment. Measurements were
Temperature Characteristics of Photosynthetic and Heterotrophic Activities: Seasonal Variations in Temperate Microbial Plankton
The evidence suggests that heterotrophic utilization of products is not suppressed during the spring phytoplankton bloom, and the temperature sensitivity of metabolic activity is statistically invariant throughout the year.
Multiple Heavy Metal Tolerance of Soil Bacterial Communities and Its Measurement by a Thymidine Incorporation Technique
A thymidine incorporation technique was used to determine the tolerance of a soil bacterial community to Cu, Cd, Zn, Ni, and Pb, indicating that there was multiple heavy metal tolerance at the community level.
Temperature shift-up experiments in mesotrophic Lake Constance, Germany, suggest that protein synthesis (Leu) and DNA replication (TdR) are controlled differently by temperature in differently adapted bacterial communities.
Adaptation of soil bacterial communities to prevailing pH in different soils
The bacterial community response to pH was studied for 16 soils with pH(H2O) ranging between 4 and 8 by measuring thymidine incorporation into bacteria extracted from the soil into a solution using
Growth rate and response of bacterial communities to pH in limed and ash treated forest soils
Abstract Culturable and total bacterial counts, bacterial growth rate and tolerance to pH, as well as microbial biomass, were studied in two coniferous forest soils. The pH had been changed by
