392 Advances In Methods and Instrumentation To Study Soil Microbial Ecology and Organic Matter and Their Interactions: I

Oral Session
SSSA Division: Soil Biology & Biochemistry
This symposium will highlight the innovative and advanced analytical/quantitative methods that are emerging to study soil organic matter. The approaches range from molecular/compound characterization to quantification of abiotic and biotic functions to genomic to foodweb studies. The session is sponsored by NCERA-59 Working Group on Soil Organic Matter
