Description
Microbial communities are important indicators of soil quality and ecosystem productivity in both natural and reclaimed ecosystems. The presence of diverse microbial communities promotes decomposition of organic materials and, in turn, the cycling of nutrients. Coarse woody debris is a reclamation tool that has been used to increase native plant establishment and improve soil development on reclamation sites. It’s possible that coarse woody debris may also influence soil microbial communities. Quantifying the impacts of coarse woody debris on soil microbial communities is therefore key to evaluating the utility of coarse woody debris for assisting reclaimed sites.
