Microbial Carbon-use Efficiency in Agroecosystems: The Effect of Drought and N Availability on Soil Microbial Production and Respiration

agroecosystems

The current project is partially funded by USDA AFRI Agriculture and Natural Resources Science for Climate Variability and Change Challenge Area,Climate and Microbial Processes in Agroecosystems program grant 2016-67004-24920 to John Stark to examine the effect of grazing management and climate change in Utah on the ability of soil microorganisms to sequester carbon. It is fundamental research to model soil nutrient cycling with the objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting carbon storage.
