Development of dehydrated silage for export and domestic forage markets

The shortage of land for forage production for ruminants in many countries (e.g., Japan, Korea and China) makes the unit cost of most forages greater than that of grains. As a resul more...

How do microbial life-history strategies affect soil respiration?

Different environments select for microbial communities with life-history strategies appropriate for that particular environment.  We suspect that life-history strategies are p more...
