Master Thesis: Distribution of microbial communities in soil and on trees of the fichtel mountains
Microorganisms are crucial for carbon dynamics, that is why we want to have a deeper look into microbial community distribution in time, in depth, in space, and in heights on spruce trees. The master thesis will be part of the Carbon4D project and includes fieldwork as well as lab work.
