What we are reading in June 2019

This month in “What we are reading”, Kabir Peay from Stanford University will tell us about the importance of climate in shaping plant-microbe interactions at the global scale. A database of >1 million forest plots was used to identify the rate of decomposition, controlled by climatic factors, as a key driver of the distribution of major plant symbioses in forest ecosystems.
His paper entitled “Climatic controls of decomposition drive the global biogeography of forest-tree symbioses” can be found here
