Effects of climate change on fungal community structure and organic matter turnover in soil profiles along elevation gradients in alpine ecosystems
Although elevation patterns of diversity for plants and animals are well known, understanding of variations in fungal community structure along elevation gradients is limited. Soil fungi play an important role in soil microbial communities, where they improve soil organic matter (SOM) turnover and nutrient circulation. Hence, any change in fungal community structure will have strong effects on soil and ecosystem functioning. The main purpose of this thesis is therefore to investigate how climate induced shifts in ...
