A vast diversity of microbial life is found in soil, forming one of the most complex ecological communities on Earth. These soil microbial communities play major roles in shaping terrestrial ecosystems, but they are increasingly challenged by perturbations associated with human-induced environment change, including climate extremes, which are predicted to increase in frequency and intensity with ongoing climate change.

In this talk, I will present recent research exploring the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that influence the capacity of soil microbial communities to resist and recover from climate extremes, and their capacity to trigger abrupt transitions to alternative microbial states.

Due to having to go online, we are restricting the talks to University of Cambridge and alumni to keep them as informal as possible.
