Belowground microbial communities play a prominent role in alpine ecosystems, regulating major biogeochemical cycles and the supply of growth-limiting nutrients to plants. This talk will consider some recent advances in our understanding of how alpine microbial communities rand their functioning responds to ongoing climate change, especially through changes in snow conditions, and how these responses are mediated by vegetation change.
