Rapid and transient changes in pH frequently occur in soil, impacting dissolved organic matter (DOM) and other chemical attributes such as redox and oxygen conditions. Although we have detailed knowledge on microbial adaptation to long-term pH changes, little is...

Proteins and metabolites typically adsorb to bacterial cell surface through a variety of mechanisms such as van der Waals attraction and electrostatic interactions, and forms a layer of nonspecifically adsorbed ions and molecules on the cell surface. Thus, the...

Research has dealt with coupling of chemical element cycles and feedback in recent years. Sometimes, this biogeochemical coupling is reversed through abiotic or biotic (including man-made) processes. It is then called biogeochemical decoupling and is a disconnection...

Background. Bamboos are typical plants in tropical forests acting as resource for different animals and influencing forest structure and dynamics, but our knowledge about their influence on ecosystem functioning remains in its infancy. Nitrogen (N) is an important...

Denitrification is an important part of the nitrogen cycle and the key step to removal of nitrogen in surface-flow wetlands. Denitrifying bacteria also function in denitrification. In this study, we explored space-time analysis with high-throughput sequencing to...
