Soil microbial interactions driving coupled carbon and nitrogen cycles across the LTER network

Microbial stoichiometry drives coupled carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycles at the ecosystem scale. For example, recent work suggests that labile C availability mediates N competition between heterotrophic soil microbes and autotrophic nitrifiers. The rate of nitrification as related to N mineralization affects ecosystem N losses via leaching and denitrification. In this workshop, we aim to explore how C and N availability influence interactions between microbial heterotrophs and autotrophs, and identify how these coupled relationships vary across ecosystems. The workshop will leverage data from C and N manipulation experiments across LTER sites and provide insight into the microbial processes that couple ecosystem C and N cycles.
