Beneficial and harmful fungi are at the root of forest diversity
by Jack J. Lee on 28 November 2019 from Mongabay A delicate balance between beneficial and harmful soil fungi associated with tree roots guides the diverse mixture of tree species that thrive in subtropical forests, according to a new study. Scientists had previously hypothesized that forest diversity resulted from a “rare-species advantage” driven by pathogenic, or harmful, fung...

Soil organic matter stability plays a major role in regulating the priming effect
Soil is the largest carbon (C) stock in terrestrial ecosystems, with its pool size being determined by the balance between C inputs from plant production and C outputs through microbial decomposition. Of the various plant–soil interactions, the priming effect (i.e. alteration of soil organic matter (SOM) decomposition by labile C inputs) is a key mechanism regulating soil C cycle. Kno...
