Soil microbial communities can be greatly affected by extreme weather conditions like the heatwave and droughts, so climate change brings potential risks to the soil nutrient cycling they underpin. Haosheng’s PhD research will focus on further finding the composition-function relationship of soil microbial communities during the resistance and resilience under and after stress.
