What’s up with soil warming?

The DOE has sponsored a new project for us to work with lead Jenny Bhatnagar and collaborators Pam Templer, Caitlin Hicks-Pries, Charlie Driscoll, and Elsa Abs at the Hubbard Brook CCASE warming and freeze-thaw experiment. How will microbes adapt to warming and alternative electron acceptors in a climate change future? We’ll let you know!

From left to right: DeAngelis, Templer, and Bhatnagar lab groups sampling CCASE in summer of 2022; Rachel Simoes, undergrad at UMass; Megan Mitchell, graduate student at UMass OEB.
