Our work on soil micorbes and macrobes during ecosystem development has been officially accepted and published in Molecular Ecology. A great work led Alessia Guerrieri and the IceCommunities team directed by Francesco Ficetola at the University of Milan.

The reconstruction of soil development after the retreat of Alpine glaciers allows us to better understand how soil microbes (bacteria and fungi) and macrobes (earthworms, insects, protists, etc.) colonize and modify new ecosystems! This knowledge is critical in the current time of global changes…
