  • Soil physics, fungal epidemiology and the spread of Rhizoctonia solani 

    Otten, Wilfred; Hall, Darroch; Harris, Kirsty; Ritz, Karl; 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 ...
  • Soil structure, fungal exploration and consequences for biocontrol 

    Otten, Wilfred; Harris, Kirsty; Young, Iain M.; Ritz, Karl; Gilligan, Christopher A. (IOBC/WPRS, 2002)
  • Spatial distribution of bacterial communities and their relationships with the micro-architecture of soil 

    Nunan, Naoise; Wu, Kejian; Young, Iain M.; Crawford, John W.; Ritz, Karl (Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2003-05-15)
    Biological soil thin-sections and a combination of image analysis and geostatistical tools were used to conduct a detailed investigation into the distribution of bacteria in soil and their relationship with pores. The ...
  • Spatial variation of effective porosity and its implications for discharge in an upland headwater catchment in Scotland 

    Deeks, L. K.; Bengough, A. Glyn; Low, D.; Billett, M. F.; Zhang, Xiaoxian; Crawford, John W.; Chessell, J. M.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier, 2004-05)
    Spatial and temporal measurements of shallow sub-surface soil physical properties were made within a 1 km2 upland catchment. The surface soil layer of the catchment was organic rich (>70% organic matter) with a corresponding ...
  • Subcritical water repellency of aggregates from a range of soil management practices 

    Hallett, Paul D.; Baumgartl, T.; Young, Iain M. (American Society of Agronomy, 2001-01)
    Subcritical water repellency is a poorly acknowledged physical property of soil. It refers to soil where water uptake appears to occur readily, yet is impeded to some extent by the presence of hydrophobic surface films. ...
  • Three-dimensional microorganization of the soil–root–microbe system 

    Feeney, Debbie S.; Crawford, John W.; Daniell, Tim; Hallett, Paul D.; Nunan, Naoise; Ritz, Karl; Rivers, Mak; Young, Iain M. (Springer New York, 2006-07)
    Soils contain the greatest reservoir of biodiversity on Earth, and the functionality of the soil ecosystem sustains the rest of the terrestrial biosphere. This functionality results from complex interactions between ...
  • Towards an evolutionary ecology of life in soil 

    Crawford, John W.; Harris, James A.; Ritz, Karl; 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 ...
  • Visualization, modelling and prediction in soil microbiology 

    O'Donnell, Anthony G.; Young, Iain M.; Rushton, Steven P.; Shirley, Mark D.; Crawford, John W. (Nature Publishing Group, 2007-09)
    The introduction of new approaches for characterizing microbial communities and imaging soil environments has benefited soil microbiology by providing new ways of detecting and locating microorganisms. Consequently, soil ...
