    Johannes Rousk
    Department of Microbial Ecology, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    FEMS Microbiol Ecol 62:258-67. 2007

  2. doi Growth of saprotrophic fungi and bacteria in soil
    Johannes Rousk
    Microbial Ecology, Department of Biology, Ecology Building, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    FEMS Microbiol Ecol 78:17-30. 2011
    ..Finally, we predict that growth methods will be an important complement to molecular approaches to elucidate fungal and bacterial ecology, and we identify methodological concerns and how they should be addressed...
  3. pmc Lack of correlation between turnover of low-molecular-weight dissolved organic carbon and differences in microbial community composition or growth across a soil pH gradient
    Johannes Rousk
    Environment Centre Wales, Bangor University, Bangor LL57 2UW, United Kingdom
    Appl Environ Microbiol 77:2791-5. 2011
    ..In contrast, the microbial community compositions differed dramatically. This suggests that microbial community composition data will be of limited use in improving the predictive power of soil C models...

    Johannes Rousk
    Microbial Ecology, Department of Biology, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    FEMS Microbiol Ecol 76:89-99. 2011
