Microbial community composition and network analyses in arid soils of the Patagonian Monte under grazing disturbance reveal an important response of the community to soil particle size
(Elsevier Science, 2019-06)
The effects of livestock grazing on soil microbial communities are not fully understood in arid regions, where water limitations can have significant consequences on soil health and biological processes. Neither are ...
Soil microbial communities respond to an environmental gradient of grazing intensity in south Patagonia Argentina
(Academic Press Ltd - Elsevier Science Ltd, 2021-01)
Soil microorganisms communities regulate key functions in terrestrial ecosystems and contributes to the formation of stable organic matter and hence climate change mitigation. The structure, diversity and activity of soil ...
Microbial diversity of the soil, rhizosphere and wine from an emerging wine-producing region of Argentina
The aim of this study was to characterize the microbial communities of Malbec vineyards recently established in a re-emerging wine region of Argentina. We studied the wine microbiota at different fermentation stages and ...
Meta-analysis of microbial communities in hot springs: Recurrent taxa and complex shaping factors beyond ph and temperature
(MDPI AG, 2020-06-16)
The study of microbial communities from extreme environments is a fascinating topic. With every study, biologists and ecologists reveal interesting facts and questions that dispel the old belief that these are inhospitable ...
Effect of long-term mineral fertilisation on soil microbial abundance, community structure and diversity in a Typic Hapludoll under intensive farming systems
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2019-11)
Fertilizer application can influence not only plant communities, but also the soil microbial community, and consequently soil quality. Mineral fertilization can directly or indirectly affect the soil chemical properties, ...

The nanotechnology among US: are metal and metal oxides nanoparticles a nano or mega risk for soil microbial communities?
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-11-05)
Metal nanoparticles and metal oxides nanoparticles (MNPs/MONPs) have been widely included in a great diversity of products and industrial applications and they are already a part of our everyday life. According to estimation ...
Land cover does not affect microbial and plant response to glyphosate and nitrogen application in the Pampas (Argentina)
(Elsevier Science, 2021-04)
Many complex, natural landscapes have been transformed into simpler agroecosystems by continuous cropping and the application of glyphosate and fertilizers. The current mosaic with different land cover types can harbor ...
Microbial planktonic communities of freshwater environments from Tierra del Fuego: dominant trophic strategies in lakes with contrasting features
(Oxford University Press, 2013-07)
We analysed the structure of the microbial plankton communities of different types of freshwater environments from the southernmost region of South America (Tierra del Fuego). Water bodies were grouped in four categories: ...
Nitrogen enrichment suppresses other environmental drivers and homogenizes salt marsh leaf microbiome
(Ecological Society of America, 2018-04-12)
Microbial community assembly is affected by a combination of forces that act simultaneously, but the mechanisms underpinning their relative influences remain elusive. This gap strongly limits our ability to predict human ...
