We have been investigating some of the microbial relationships present in our ecosystems to see if we can incorporate this knowledge into our seeding designs and treatments. Our lead soil scientist, Dr Miriam Munoz Rojas, continues to work in this space. Please see: Muñoz-Rojas et al (2016) Soil physicochemical and microbiological indicators of short, medium, and long term post-fire recovery in semi-arid ecosystems. Ecological Indicators, 63, 14-22 and Muñoz-Rojas et al (2016) Soil quality indicators to assess functionality of restored soils in degraded semiarid ecosystems. Restoration Ecology, 24, S43-S52.
