  • Preferential spread of the pathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani through structured soil 

    Otten, Wilfred; Harris, K.; Young, Iain M.; Ritz, K.; Gilligan, C. A. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2004-02)
    Most studies on soil fungi have been carried out with little explicit characterisation of soil structure within which fungi spread and biotic interactions occur. In this paper we use a combination of epidemiological ...
  • Simultaneous preservation of soil structural properties and phospholipid profiles: A comparison of three drying techniques 

    Deacon, L. J.; Grinev, Dmitri V.; Crawford, John W.; Harris, J.; Ritz, K.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier, 2008-06)
    There is a need to simultaneously preserve evidence of interactions between the biological community and soil structural properties of a soil in as near an intact (natural) state as possible. Three dehydration techniques ...
  • Soil physics, fungal epidemiology and the spread of Rhizoctonia solani 

    Otten, Wilfred; Hall, D.; Harris, K.; Ritz, K.; Young, Iain M.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2001-08)
    The role of soil structure on colonization efficiency of the pathogen Rhizoctonia solani is analysed by linking experimental techniques that control and quantify soil structure with epidemiological concepts that deal with ...
  • Towards an evolutionary ecology of life in soil 

    Crawford, John W.; Harris, J. A.; Ritz, K.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier, 2005-02)
    The soil-microbe system is one of the most diverse components of the terrestrial ecosystem. The origin of this diversity, and its relation to the life-sustaining processes that are mediated by the resident microbial ...
