My PhD project aimed at understanding primary colonization and ecological stability of microbial communities in two unvegetated alpine glacier forefields of different geology (siliceous vs. calcareous) in Switzerland. The goal is to determine the keyfactor shaping the microbial community structure in those forefields.
