The biochemical effects of trees may significantly influence local pedogenesis as well as pedocomplexity, biodiversity and forest dynamics on both stand and landscape scales. One such effect is the decay of tree trunks, which is driven by organisms, and especially by the microbiome. Decomposition modifies soil formation, which due to the existence of many feedbacks affects the composition of the decomposer community. Advancing SDG 15, this article aimed to uncover general trends in the evolution of Entic Podzols as well as individual trajectories of soil properties below decaying beech trunks in an old-growth mountain forest.

Fire is an ecological disturbance that alters soil microbiomes and the functions they mediate in terrestrial ecosystems. Soil microbial diversity in Mediterranean Basin ecosystems shows resilience to fire following the restoration of plant-soil feedbacks. Advancing SDG 15, this article explores whether microbial functions related to organic matter decomposition and nutrient cycling might show similar patterns of recovery.
