Long-term forest soil warming alters microbial communities in temperate forest soils

Kristen DeAngelis et al.

Soil microbes are major drivers of soil carbon cycling, yet we lack an understanding of how
climate warming will affect microbial communities. Three ongoing field studies at the Harvard Forest
Long-term Ecological Research (LTER) site (Petersham, MA) have warmed soils 5oC above ambient
temperatures for 5, 8 and 20 years. We used this chronosequence to test the hypothesis that soil
microbial communities have changed in response to chronic warming. Bacterial community

I am a Research Associate II in Kirsten Hofmockel’s lab and am responsible for organization and coordination of the day-to-day lab and fieldwork activities for the postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate research assistants. My background is in microbial ecology with an interest in how microbial diversity and function in a broad range of ecosystems is impacted by human activities such as agriculture, eutrophication and climate change.
