Priming along an altitudinal gradient

  • Väisänen, Maria (Collaborative Investigator)

Project Details


Plant root exudation can affect soil microbial communities and induce decomposition of accumulated soil organic matter. This project manipulates (summer 2016) plant production and thereby root exudation through shading at different vegetation communities along an altitudinal gradient.
