Impact of Soil and Grassland Management on Plant-Microbial Interactions that Mediate Soil Organic Matter Mineralisation and Nitrogen Supply

Project Details


PhD Project on grassland microbiology, investigating nitrogen mineralisation.

Layman's description

Organic nitrogen applied to soils must first be mineralised to a form available to plants before it can be uptaken. This process is controlled by interactions between soil microbes and plants.

Key findings

Microbial activities associated with N mineralisation may be affected by plant functional diversity, season, and soil type.
