Journal Article
Booth, J., Fusi, M., Marasco, R., Michoud, G., Fodelianakis, S., Merlino, G., & Daffonchio, D. (2019)
The role of fungi in heterogeneous sediment microbial networks. Scientific Reports, 9, 1-14. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-43980-3
While prokaryote community diversity and function have been extensively studied in soils and sediments, the functional role of fungi, despite their huge diversity, is widely u...

Bacterial endophytes of mangrove propagules elicit early establishment of the natural host and promote growth of cereal crops under salt stress

Journal Article
Soldan, R., Mapelli, F., Crotti, E., Schnell, S., Daffonchio, D., Marasco, R., …Cardinale, M. (2019)
Bacterial endophytes of mangrove propagules elicit early establishment of the natural host and promote growth of cereal crops under salt stress. Microbiological Research, 223, 33-43. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.micres.2019.03.008
Mangroves, dominating tropical intertidal zones and estuaries, are among the most salt tolerant plants, and propagate through reproductive units called propagules. Similarly t...

High denitrification and anaerobic ammonium oxidation contributes to net nitrogen loss in a seagrass ecosystem in the central Red Sea

Journal Article
Garcias-Bonet, N., Fusi, M., Ali, M., Shaw, D. R., Saikaly, P. E., Daffonchio, D., & Duarte, C. M. (2018)
High denitrification and anaerobic ammonium oxidation contributes to net nitrogen loss in a seagrass ecosystem in the central Red Sea. Biogeosciences, 15(23), 7333-7346. https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-7333-2018

Optimising camera trap data quality at mammal resting places.

Journal Article
Findlay, M. A., Briers, R. A., & White, P. J. C. (2018)
Optimising camera trap data quality at mammal resting places. In Practice, 24-28
A thorough understanding of how camera traps function is essential for ensuring correct set-up and quality of data. We illustrate the challenges through a case study of camera...

Consistent patterns of high alpha and low beta diversity in tropical parasitic and free-living protists

Journal Article
Lentendu, G., Mahé, F., Bass, D., Rueckert, S., Stoeck, T., & Dunthorn, M. (2018)
Consistent patterns of high alpha and low beta diversity in tropical parasitic and free-living protists. Molecular Ecology, 27(13), 2846-2857. https://doi.org/10.1111/mec.14731
Tropical animals and plants are known to have high alpha diversity within forests, but low beta diversity between forests. By contrast, it is unknown if microbes inhabiting th...
