Rhizosphere Processes

Head: Dr. Beat Frey

The group studies the complex interactions between soil, microbes and roots under natural systems and investigates the impacts of environmental change on these interactions. The group applies biochemical, molecular and stable isotope methods in their studies. The two areas of research concern 1) soil bacterial and fungal communities as drivers for biogeochemical processes and 2) soil microbial communities and roots as indicators of environmental stress.
