Soil microbial communities influencing organic phosphorus mineralization in a coastal dune chronosequence in New Zealand
(Oxford University Press on behalf of FEMS, 2021-04)
The Haast chronosequence in New Zealand is an ∼6500-year dune formation series, characterized by rapid podzol development, phosphorus (P) depletion and a decline in aboveground biomass. We examined bacterial and fungal ...
Soil microbial diversity in adjacent forest systems – contrasting native, old growth kauri (Agathis australis) forest with exotic pine (Pinus radiata) plantation forest
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS), 2020-05)
Globally, the conversion of primary forests to plantations and agricultural landscapes is a common land use change. Kauri (Agathis australis) is one of the most heavily impacted indigenous tree species of New Zealand with ...
Effect of nitrogen and waterlogging on denitrifier gene abundance, community structure and activity in the rhizosphere of wheat
(Oxford University Press and Blackwell Publishing Ltd on behalf of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies, 2013-03-01)
Microbial denitrification plays a key role in determining the availability of soil nitrogen (N) to plants. However, factors influencing the structure and function of denitrifier communities in the rhizosphere remain unclear. ...
