Real-World Native Biocrusts: Microbial Metabolism

Biological soil crusts can exist for extended periods in a dormant state. When it rains, microbes in those crusts become metabolically active, altering both the community structure and the soil chemistry. Using a simplified test-tube system and “exometabolomics,” can help understand the connection between the chemical diversity of soil and microbial diversity in a real-world setting. More>
