  • Hydrothermal vent fields and chemosynthetic biota on the world's deepest seafloor spreading centre 

    Connelly, Douglas P.; Copley, Jaonathan T.; Murton, Bramley J.; Stansfield, Kate; Tyler, Paul A.; German, Cristopher R.; Van Dover, Cindy L.; Amon, Diva; Furlong, Maaten; Grindlay, Nancy; Hayman, Nicholas; Hühnerbach, Veit; Judge, Maria; Le Bas, Tim; McPhail, Stephen; Meier, Alexandra; Nakamura, Koichi; Nye, Verity; Pebody, Miles; Pedersen, Rolf B.; Plouviez, Sophia; Sands, Carla; Searle, Roger C.; Stevenson, Peter; Taws, Sarah; Wilcox, Sally (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-01-10)
    The Mid-Cayman spreading centre is an ultraslow-spreading ridge in the Caribbean Sea. Its extreme depth and geographic isolation from other mid-ocean ridges offer insights into the effects of pressure on hydrothermal ...

  • Microbial community composition shapes enzyme patterns in topsoil and subsoil horizons along a latitudinal transect in Western Siberia 

    Schnecker, Jörg; Wild, Birgit; Takriti, Mounir; Eloy Alves, Ricardo J; Gentsch, Norman; Gittel, Antje; Hofer, Angelika; Klaus, Karoline; Knoltsch, Anna; Lashchinskiy, Nikolay; Mikutta, Robert; Richter, Andreas (Elsevier, 2015-04)
    Soil horizons below 30 cm depth contain about 60% of the organic carbon stored in soils. Although insight into the physical and chemical stabilization of soil organic matter (SOM) and into microbial community composition ...

  • Energy landscapes shape microbial communities in hydrothermal systems on the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge 

    Dahle, Håkon; Økland, Ingeborg Elisabet; Thorseth, Ingunn Hindenes; Pedersen, Rolf B.; Steen, Ida Helene (Nature Publishing Group (NPG), 2015-01-09)
    Methods developed in geochemical modelling combined with recent advances in molecular microbial ecology provide new opportunities to explore how microbial communities are shaped by their chemical surroundings. Here, we ...

  • Effects of soil organic matter properties and microbial community composition on enzyme activities in cryoturbated arctic soils 

    Schnecker, Jörg; Wild, Birgit; Hofhansl, Florian; Alves, Ricardo J. Eloy; Bárta, Jiří; Čapek, Petr; Fuchslueger, Lucia; Gentsch, Norman; Gittel, Antje; Guggenberger, Georg; Hofer, Angelika; Kienzl, Sandra; Knoltsch, Anna; Lashchinskiy, Nikolay; Mikutta, Robert; Šantrůčková, Hana; Shibistova, Olga; Takriti, Mounir; Urich, Tim; Weltin, Georg; Richter, Andreas (PLoS, 2014-04-04)
    Enzyme-mediated decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) is controlled, amongst other factors, by organic matter properties and by the microbial decomposer community present. Since microbial community composition and SOM ...

  • Simultaneous Assessment of Soil Microbial Community Structure and Function through Analysis of the Meta-Transcriptome 

    Urich, Tim; Lanzén, Anders; Qi, Ji; Huson, Daniel H.; Schleper, Christa Maria; Schuster, Stephan C. (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2008-06-25)
    Background: Soil ecosystems harbor the most complex prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbial communities on Earth. Experimental approaches studying these systems usually focus on either the soil community’s taxonomic structure ...
