Summary

Understanding the temperature sensitivity of soil respiration is critical for predicting the response of ecosystems to climate change, yet the microbial communities responsible are rarely considered explicitly in studies or models. In this study, we assessed total microbial community composition, quantified bacterial respiration temperature response, and investigated the temperature dependence of bacterial carbon substrate utilization in tropical, temperate, and taiga soils (from Puerto Rico, California, and Alaska). Microbial community composition was characterized using phospholipid fatty acid analysis. Bacterial community respiration on a standardized set of substrates was ascertained using the BiOLOG™ substrate utilization assay [...]
