Project description

Understanding the functional relationschip between microbial composition an ecosystem functioning is critical to predict ecosystem response to changing environmental conditions and ecosystem disturbance. This study aims to assess the control microbial communities exert over nitrogen biogeochemistry in south Chilean pasture and forest ecosystems under stress.
