127 Soil and Plant Biotic Feedbacks (Includes Graduate Student Poster Competition)

Poster Session
S03 Soil Biology & Biochemistry The session is both a general session on microbial and plant biotic feedbacks and an opportunity for graduate students to present their research. The S3 division will rank the poster and cash prizes are given to the top three posters.
