Adaptation of soil microbial growth to temperature: Using a tropical elevation gradient to predict future changes

Nottingham, Andrew T.; Bååth, Erland; Reischke, Stephanie; Salinas, Norma; Meir, Patrick


Terrestrial biogeochemical feedbacks to the climate are strongly modulated by the temperature response of soil microorganisms. Tropical forests, in particular, exert a major influence on global climate because they are the most productive terrestrial ecosystem. We used an elevation gradient across tropical forest in the Andes (a gradient of 20°C mean annual temperature, MAT), to test whether soil bacterial and fungal community growth responses are adapted to long‐term temperature differences....[Show more]
