Impacts of atmospheric deposition on soil chemistry, mycorrhiza, recruitment and vitality of juniper (Juniperus communis)



Humans cause global change including soil acidification. In this project I will investigate the effects of soil acidification on the fitness of the common juniper (Juniperus communis). Thereby I will look into the role of mycorrhizal fungi on this interaction since they can ameliorate the effects of soil acidification. On the other hand soil acidification can negatively affect mycorrhizal fungi as well and thereby indirectly the common juniper.
