Impact of climatic stresses on soil biodiversity

Climate is changing and we know the negative effects on aboveground biodiversity.

Yet, we know little on the impact climate change has on belowground organisms, particularly protists and nematodes. This will be subject for your study in which you will apply climate stressors (heat, drought, salinity, flooding) and how potential changes in soil communiites link to functional changes such decreased provisioning of multifunctionality.
