The Composition, Structure and Nitrogen Fixing Potential of Eubacterial Communities in a Maltese Garrigue and Agricultural Soil 

UoM Fund Allocation R81, 2008-2011

The garrigue constitutes an important part of the natural environment of the Maltese Islands and is home to about 500 indigenous species. Natural garrigue develops on karst landscape and the flora and consequently the fauna utilise the nutrients found in soil trapped in these karst fissures. Mineralization of organic matter and nitrogen fixation by microorganisms constitute the two main sources of nutrients in these soils The aim of this project is to study temporal shifts in the microbial populations that play an important role in the cycling of nutrients in these soils.

Further information is available on request from the Division of Rural Sciences and Food Systems.
