The effect of logging and regeneration burn severity on the composition and succession of soil microbial communities (2019 - 2020)$12,750
This project will model the impacts of forestry management practices on the composition and succession of soil microbial communities, and investigate their links with regenerating plant communities. The soil microbiome and plant community will be sampled across a logging and burning severity gradient at four points in time. By extracting soil DNA and sequencing the 16SrRNA and ITS regions, the biodiversity of the bacterial and fungal communities can be characterised. This project will focus on important taxa involved in symbiotic and pathogenic relationships with plants, and free-living taxa that are responsible for the availability of essential plant nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorous.
