Investigating soil microbes' role in carbon cycle

(University of Massachusetts at Amherst) Kristen DeAngelis at UMass Amherst recently received nearly $2.5 million from the US Department of Energy to advance understanding of the role of soil microbes in feeding carbon into the atmosphere and contributing to global warming. Soils are the largest repository of organic carbon in the terrestrial biosphere and represent an important source of CO2.
