- ... Fire alters ecosystems by changing the composition and community structure of soil microbes. The phylogenetic structure of a community provides clues about its main assembling mechanisms. While environmental filtering tends to reduce the community phylogenetic diversity by selecting for functionally (and hence phylogenetically) similar species, processes like competitive exclusion by limiting simi ...

- ... High-throughput sequencing technologies have recently made it possible to interrogate the phylogenetic diversity of soils at considerable depth. This ability has led to the development of many computational tools to infer interaction networks from environmental samples. Although such tools have widely been used, they have more often served as a visual means to compare microbial communities across ...
