Abstract Desert soil- and rock-surface communities are of crucial importance in the global biogeochemical cycles of carbon and nitrogen. In arid regions, nitrogen inputs depend on biological nitrogen fixation. Biological soil crusts contribute substantially to nitrogen fixation and act as net exporters of am .. [more]
