Dr. Tiemann views soil organic matter (SOM) dynamics and nitrogen cycling through a microbial lens. With a new, microbially oriented view of SOM formation, microbial community structure, biofilm formation, microbial productivity and microbial growth efficiency are all factors likely to influence and contribute to SOM formation and stabilization; however these factors have rarely been explored in this context.
