Bacteria and fungi may cause images of illness and spoiled food, but they will do many things. The billions of microbes, for example, from the dead leaves, for example, become natural residues and regeneration nutrients need the next generation of plants.

"If it was not bacteria and mushrooms, we'd be surrounded by dead trees and plant substances to make them really important," says Sidney Glasman, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Microbiology and Plant Pathology at the University of California, Riverside.

Microbial themes are the fact that dead plants and animals are known to destroy the little ones if they are equipped to meet climate change. Published in the article today Works of the National Academy of Sciences, Glass and colleagues found UC Irvine on what was happening in the new climatic conditions after microbial communities. The study is the first step towards understanding the vulnerability of these ecosystems towards climate change.

In order to create a warming planet, researchers have five academic areas located in the San Jacinto Mount in Southern California, which differ from climate, in the field of Natural Reserves conducted by the University of California. Each area has its own set of resident microbes belonging to local microclines.

"Although we know that the climate is influencing how fast the microorganisms are processed in vegetation, we do not know how important the microbes are to be processed," says UNICEF Martin, Professor of Unilever and co-author.

To move around the microbial communities, the researchers introduced microbes in miniature pores in nylon containers. This "microbial cage" was full of dead, sterilized grass and live microbes. Container water and nutrients are permitted – but not microbes – move and go out. The growth of the microbes grown in the grass increased by six, 12 and 18 months.

The study confirmed previous results, with moderate climatic conditions (not too hot or cold or wet or dry), saw the worst and consequently the most effective places for food recycling. The more surprising, however, the sources of microbes are also affected by the amount of decay. The microorganisms of individual objects were better performed than others in their resident environment. For example, in the dry shrub, the herb-proposed microbes accounted for about 40 percent.

"We're likely to see the" field field advantage "situation where all microbial society is broken up in the best place, but it was not the case," Glassman said. "Although we know that the microbes decay the plants in a more slowly hotter and dry environment, we now learn that specific microbial communities will play an independent role in the disruption and it still does not show how these topics will affect climate change and desertification."

The paper's name is "climate dependence on the attitude of the microbial society". In addition, Glasman, who finished UC Irvine as postdoctoral researcher, UC Irvine's staff are: Martin, Claudia Weihey, Junoy Lee, Michael Albright, Caitlin Logie, Adam Martin, Kathleen Testerer and Stephen Allison. The research was financed by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Energy.
