I propose to investigate the EM fungal community associated with in-situ soil phosphatase activity across a fire generated chronosequence to identify which EM fungal species are associated with organic phosphorus mobilization after disturbance by fire and to evaluate changes in the function and structure of the EMM community as forests age.  This study will evaluate the EMM community structure associated with in-situ soil phosphatase activity between soil horizons and across a chronosequence, analyze the relative contribution of the EMM microbial community to soil enzyme production against the nascent activities of non-associated microbes, and visualize interactions between EMM and EMM associated bacteria.
