Project summary:
A central challenge in ecology is to predict how global environmental change will affect the processes that mediate the diversity and dynamics of plant communities. One type of process that is already being affected is the feedback between plants and soil microbes—a widespread mechanism that controls species coexistence, invasions, and succession. This group will address fundamental questions about how plant-soil feedbacks change with environmental context and interactive stressors, a problem that has gained urgency in the face of global change.
