Soil life ‘remembers’ extreme weather [Science] Resource

Extreme weather such as drought continues to influence the success of plants even after it is over. This process goes through the soil life, and local plants seem to be more sensitive to extreme weather than exotics. Researchers from the Nematology and Soil Quality chair groups and the NIOO discovered this by exposing soils to simulated drought and floods. They published their findings on 28 May in the journal PNAS.
