Xian Yang recently published her work on the effects of forest fragment size on leaf litter decomposition and the mechanisms underlying the litter decomposition-island area relationship in CATENA and her collaborative work with our visiting scholar Dr. Weixing Liu entitled “Long-term nitrogen input alters plant and soil bacterial, but not fungal beta diversity in a semiarid grassland” in Global Change Biology.
