PBS Program Name:
ARC 20/21 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Early Career Researcher Award
Grant Activity:
A global exploration of microbial carbon breakdown in wetland ecosystems
Purpose:
This project aims to investigate how plant litter breakdown in wetlands controls soil carbon preservation by identifying the climatic, environmental and microbial drivers of decomposition on a global scale. This project will generate new knowledge in the area of freshwater and coastal wetland ecology using interdisciplinary approaches in biogeochemistry and microbial ecology. Outcomes of this project include novel global datasets that will identify why some wetlands preserve carbon better than others and what management practices can enhance sequestration capacity. This should provide significant benefits, including advancing carbon-cycling models and predictions, and improving capacity to manage and restore wetland function.
