PhD in plant ecology in Nijmegen on plant-soil feedback

Does plant-soil feedback drive plant community patterns in a species-rich grassland?”

A fascinating and still unresolved question in ecology is how so many species can coexist in a single ecosystem. Studies in recent years have suggested that the communities of bacteria and fungi in the soil likely play a special role in maintaining plant species diversity. In this project, funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), we are making use of a unique field dataset to test whether plant-soil feedback interactions drive plant community dynamics in a species-rich grassland in the Czech Republic. The project combines statistical analyses of long-term field data, experimental work on plant-soil feedback responses in outdoor mesocosms, molecular characterization of soil microbial communities, and plant community modelling. The project aims to test whether species-specific soil microbial communities are a significant force in maintaining plant biodiversity in grasslands.

Important experiment

Hi there,
sorry for the "catchy" headline. Recently I had the feeling, that putting effort into this page does not make much sense. That it doesn't serve the purpose of information exchange among botany PhD students of different Czech universities. So I need your help. Could you write me an e-mail to my address please ( tomas.koubek@gmail.com ) with only your institution and the information you are looking for at this page? THANKS a lot.

I would be grateful for any other remarks of course. And if you have information to share, I can easily create an account for you (Czech PhD students in botany only).

Ahoj.
omlouvám se za ten bulvární nadpis. Tohle je jenom takový malý test, jestli to tu někdo čte a jestli to vážně ještě slouží k výměně informací mezi doktorandy botaniky na různých universitách. Pokud tuhle stránku chcete dál držet, napište mi jen krátce odkud jste a jaké informace tu hledáte. Samozřejmě poznámky a povzbuzení jsou vítány. Díky. Pište na tomas.koubek@gmail.com

Pokud máte pocit, že byste sem chtěli přispívat a jste doktorandi botaniky z ČR, rád vám zřídím účet.
