Call for Participation | Functional Ecology of Alpine Soils

crocus 3175454 640This study forms part of a UK NERC-funded fellowship at Lancaster University, entitled ‘The resistance and resilience of mountain soils in the face of change’. The primary focus of this call is to make the first global assessment of the response of alpine soil microbial communities to perturbations associated with climate extremes, and to use proximate controls (e.g. microhabitat, microbial community structure, soil organic matter quality, vegetation structure) as well as broader-scale controls (e.g. bioclimatic zone, geological attributes) to explain variance.
