Current Research Project

PhD project on the "Effects of the impaired soil P and N stoichiometries on plant symbioses with microorganisms"

Objective 1: The influence of root traits and AMF physiological characteristics under nitrogen-phosphorus nutrients imbalance, including phosphorus relative availability deficiency and abundance.
Objective 2: Changes in diminant AMF species and recruited phosphorus-mobilizing bacterial community composition under nutrient imbalance.
Objective 3: Comparison of phosphorus absorption efficiency under different phosphorus uptake pathways
Objective 4: Mechanisms of AMF and hyphal phosphourus absorption under different initial nutrient conditions
