Introduction

The SOIL MICROBIAL ECOLOGY GROUP at NEIKER-BRTA (www.soilmicrobialecology.com) is most interested in the impact of different sources of environmental stress (contamination, agricultural practices, climate change) on soil health. Our research is focused on the utilization of soil microbial properties (mainly, those related to the biomass, activity and structural/functional diversity of soil microbial communities) as biological indicators of (i) the impact of disturbances on soil health and (ii) the efficiency of remediation methods (bioremediation and phytoremediation of contaminated soils). Regarding agricultural practices, we work on the utilization of soil microbial properties as biomonitoring tools for the assessment of the improvement in soil health derived from the application of environmentally-friendly practices (e.g., no-tillage, organic fertilization). Finally, an important part of our research is nowadays focused on the risk of dissemination of emerging contaminants (e.g., antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes) in agricultural soils and crops.

We determine a great variety of parameters as indicators of soil microbial (i) BIOMASS: biomass carbon, ATP, DNA, ergosterol, glomalin, substrate-induced respiration, total bacteria, total fungi, total archaea, gene abundance by qPCR/high-throughput qPCR/droplet digital PCR, etc.; (ii) ACTIVITY: basal respiration, potentially mineralizable N, nitrification potential rate, enzyme activities (ß-glucosidase, ß-glucosaminidase, cellulose, chitinase, xylosidase, urease, arginine deaminase, amidase, protease, L-leucine aminopeptidase, L-alanine aminopeptidase, arylsulfatase, acid and alkaline phosphatase, dehydrogenase, FDA-fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis, gyrase), etc.; and (iii) DIVERSITY: community-level genetic profiles with ARISA and DGGE, community-level physiological profiles with Biolog™ plates, functional microarrays, high-throughput sequencing (16S rRNA/18S rRNA/ITS metabarcoding and shotgun), etc. In addition, we quantify functional genes (biodegradation, nutrient cycling, antibiotic resistance, horizontal gene transfer) and ecosystem attributes (resistance, resilience, suppresiveness, etc.). Last but not least, we study the traits of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria and bacterial endophytes (ACC deaminase activity, siderophore production, phosphate solubilisation, indolacetic production, etc.) and perform soil ecotoxicity tests (Microtox, MARA, LumiMARA, PICT, MIC values, etc.).
