Collaborative Research: Controls over the Spatial Distribution and Activity of Microbial Communities in Antarctic Soils
Entry ID: NSF-ANT09-44556

Abstract: Advances in molecular techniques have expanded our understanding of soil microbial communities, and raised important questions about regional and global patterns in microbial diversity. The proposed research will investigate the composition and activity of microbial communities across a range of geochemical and hydrologic soil conditions, and over local to regional scales in the Transantarctic ...
