[ID: 188] General composition of soil microbial communities in relation to higher productivity of Scots pine vs. Norway spruce stands
PI: Robert Blasko
The aim of the study is to explore the general composition of soil microbial communities and relate it to the higher productivity of the Scots pine stands at four different sites in Sweden. We analyzed soil samples for PLFA and ergosterol biomarkers and estimated fine-root biomass. In addition, we estimated ergosterol concentration in the fine roots.
