Abstract Soil management is necessary to ensure the fertility of reforested land, yet the long-term impact of harvesting on the soil microbial communities which mediate fertility remains largely a matter of conjecture. In 1989, the North American-wide 'long-term soil productivity' (LTSP) study was initiated .. [more]
