Global change is expected to increase the diversity of bacteria at the local level, while their composition will become more uniform globally. Researchers from the German Center for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), the Universities of Halle-Wittenberg and Leipzig, and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences have holistically assessed how climate and land use changes affect bacterial communities in soil. The study can help make reliable predictions about changes on the global level.
