Understanding the role of cyanobacterial crusts in stabilising deserts
Monday, 18 August 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Fenner Seminar Room, Frank Fenner Building 141, Linnaeus Way, ANU
Biological soil crusts are formed by organisms which occur at the soil surface, including cyanobacteria, bryophytes, mosses and lichens. They have many ecosystem functions, including carbon and nitrogen fixation and nutrient cycling, and play an important role in landscape stability by protecting the soil against wind and water erosion. This makes biological soil crusts important 'ecosystem engineers' in that they cause changes in soil surface conditions that affect the habitat for other organisms.
