Carolyn Malmstrom and her group received exploratory grants from the DOE Biological and Environmental Research program as part of a collaborative effort to understand how climate change affects the capacity of soils to remove carbon from the atmosphere and retain enough nutrients for food production.  In particular, the teams will investigate climate change-related effects of drought and virus infection in plants, and their interaction with soils (https://www.umass.edu/newsoffice/article/umass-amherst-study-looks-drought-and).  The research was featured in an article in the Boston Globe (https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2019/01/14/rooted-research/hs6NYd8nJrsb8GDuPOnpLL/story.html).
