Linking microbial diversity in the vadose zone with spatial heterogeneity, temporal varying soil surface hydration status and bacterial survival strategies

Soil pores and rough surfaces form a complex template within which unparalleled microbial diversity is found.  Fluctuations in soil water contents results in hydration patchiness at the microbial scale and affects diffusion connectivity and resource ...

The Hidden Frontier: Quantitative Exploration of Physical and Ecological Origins of Microbial Diversity in Soil (SoilLife)

  By some accounts exploring the origins of soil microbial diversity represents a scientific frontier similar to that of space exploration in its scope. This biodiversity is attributed to soil ecological heterogeneity reflecting interplay of physical ...
