368 Resiliency in Soil Microbial Communities Oral - Stress Responses & Hot Spots

Oral Session
SSSA Division: Soil Biology and Biochemistry
Ephemeral pulse events are an important for ecosystem functioning, contributing to landscape heterogeneity and biodiversity. The response and recovery of microbial communities during these events is important for predicting ecosystem responses.  In this session, we will explore how microbial communities in both managed and natural soils respond to ephemeral events; either moments of scarcity (I. Stress) or abundance (II. Hot spots).
