Description Soil is a major global carbon pool, and one that will likely be particularly sensitive to changing climate. The scientific motivation for the proposed research relates on the importance of understanding the roles of microbes in the carbon cycle and recognition of the vast importance of soil-associated microbial communities in turnover of terrestrial soil carbon reservoirs. The rationale for the proposed work is that metagenomic and transcriptomic methods have largely unrealized potential to provide new insight into soil microbiology and microbial processes.
The alteration of rainfall levels that will occur with climate change will have largely unforeseen consequences for soil. Similarly, modified processes in soil resulting from changed climate will have feedbacks to the climate system that are extremely difficult to predict. Higher rainfall may lead to increased plant growth and short term increases in soil carbon inventories. Further, altered vegetation will likely change the type and resilience of carbon compounds stored in soil. At this time, the detailed functioning of the soil carbon cycle, and how transformation of carbon will change as climate changes, are almost impossible to predict because we know so little about soil biology. Thus, the detailed rationale for the proposed work is that cultivation-independent sequencing approaches can directly access the membership (species composition), spatial variation in membership, spatial variation with depth, and membership variation over time. Reconstruction of partial and potentially nearly-completely sampled genomes will enable the analysis of metabolic potential that will be used to construct conceptual models for carbon transformation pathways in the ecosystem. Comparison between datasets for the rainfall manipulation plots should reveal significant differences in community composition, metabolic potential, and response to the rain event perturbation; results that can be compared to large existing datasets documenting above ground responses.
We have conducted preliminary analysis of the Angelo community using the PhyloChip method (Cruz-Martinez et al. 2009). After 5 years of precipitation amendment, 12 neighboring plots were used for combined analysis of above-ground and below-ground communities. We have also studied soil microbial communities following Fall rain events (Cruz-Martinez et al. 2012). These results have been used to guide the design of the currently proposed research.
It is undeniable that the proposed analyses will be challenging. For this reason, we have designed a research effort that incorporates some important simplifications. First, the choice of grassland minimizes macroscopic heterogeneity linked to vegetation inputs as would be encountered, for example, in a forest. Second, our previous 16S rRNA analysis laid the foundation for the proposed metagenomic analysis. Third, we will not sample the rhizosphere zone (A horizon), but rather focus on the communities along the flow path from the bottom of the soil A horizon and into the vadose zone, where substantial carbon transfer to the larger ecosystem should occur. This choice should greatly decrease the biological complexity, yet still provide insight into soil processes. Fourth, we will only study soil over a short time period, chosen specifically to correspond to the key period of carbon turnover (based on prior work by our team). The perturbation associated with Fall rainfall is expected to selectively impact the abundance levels of certain organisms; successional processes should be evident via the time series analysis. Finally, we have extensive experience dealing with the assemblies fragmented by strain variation, which our preliminary soil assemblies indicate is the main limitation for soil metagenomics. Even if we cannot circumvent genome fragmentation, our robust binning approach will allow us to generate a near-comprehensive, organism-resolved view of metabolic potential.
