Research

Main content

Our research topics can be grouped as follows:

  1. We quantify element pools in soils and study processes controlling fluxes using isotopic (33P, 18O, 15N, 13C, metal isotopes) and speciation (enzymes, 31P-NMR, chromatography, chemical extractions) methods
  2. We analyze soil microbial diversity in relation to microbially mediated nutrient transformations
  3. We study nutrient dynamics in plant-soil systems under controlled conditions
  4. We investigate nutrient dynamics and (re-)cycling in agrosystems and in semi-natural ecosystems at field level

Several projects cover multiple topics, as we aim at an integrated study of nutrient in the ecosystem.
