Plant-Microbe-Soil Interactions

In our group, the research related to root processes is focused on root-microbial interactions and on how roots and symbiotic fungi affect plant C allocation and nutrient uptake. In addition, our work has a strong emphasis on the study of C stabilization, microbial carbon use efficiency and vertical distribution in soil profiles — aspects that are crucial when soil C sequestration is evaluated. Research is teamwork, and we collaborate tightly with other groups and institutes with complementary expertise. Our work is part of the Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR) activities
