KJ Min publishes in Soil Biology and Biochemistry

Posted by Sharon Billings on 1 December 2014

KJ Min, Ph.D. aspirant in Sharon Billings' lab, published her paper "Differential effects of pH on temperature sensitivity of organic carbon and nitrogen decay" in Soil Biology and Biochemistry (76: 193-200).

KJ Min, Ph.D. aspirant in Sharon Billings' lab, published her paper "Differential effects of pH on temperature sensitivity of organic carbon and nitrogen decay" in Soil Biology and Biochemistry (76: 193-200). The work is important because it describes how, even without microbes adapting their behaviors in a changing temperature regime, the degree to which C and N will become available with warming can vary, and these changes are governed by pH. Thus, in a changing climate, the soil microbes that help govern Earth's climate via the release of CO2 will have to cope with altered resource availability - even if vegetation identity and productivity remained constant.
