Kurt Reinhart publishes paper on plant-soil feedback in Science

Kurt Reinhart was part of the lab back in the old days when I was at Sapelo full time. He’s now working for the USDA Agricultural Research Service and recently co-authored a paper in Science on plant-soil feedbacks. The bottom line was that, for 550 populations of 55 species of trees across the USA, trees with arbuscular mycorrhizae had negative soil feedbacks whereas trees with ectomycorrhizae had positive soil feedbacks. Very cool stuff. Check it out:

Bennett et al. 2017, Plant-soil feedbacks and mycorrhizal type influence temperate forest population dynamics. Science 355:181-184.

 

Kurt studying something. From his website. Looks scientific.
