Ecosystem loss of soil inorganic carbon with agricultural conversion: fate, rate, mechanisms, and pathways
ID: 626334
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2016-07-31
The goal of this proposed research is to understand effects of agricultural conversions on soil inorganic carbon (SIC) cycle. Mitigating rising atmospheric CO2 is a top priority for human and environmental health. Despite their prevalence and increasing pressure from land-use...

Motiliy in the third domain of life: the haloarchaeal way to move
ID: 625316
Start date: 2015-03-01, End date: 2017-08-02
The first representatives of the third domain of life, Archaea, were isolated from particularly harsh environments. Long it was thought that all archaea are ‘extremophiles’, but recently archaea were discovered in many temperate habitats, including the human gut, sea and soil...
