Microbial communities

Monitoring and analysis of the structure, function and biodiversity of soils

My PhD thesis!

Soil textural heterogeneity impacts bacterial but not fungal diversity

Soil textural heterogeneity is linked to bacterial richness, and textural composition is linked to bacterial and fungal composition.

Plant and soil communities are associated with the response of soil water repellency to environmental stress

Surface soil water repellency is related to the ecological communities at a site.

Microbial community change within a long term climate change experiment on Welsh heathland.

Divergent national-scale trends of microbial and animal biodiversity revealed across diverse temperate soil ecosystems

Biodiversity of soil microbes and soil animals show different patterns across land use.
