Following the development of many tools for microbial ecologists the soil bacterial component has been well described at many levels and in many environments, but mechanisms around formation and maintenance are still not well understood. Soil is such an inherently complex environment to work in, so we need to use model systems and conceptual models of bacterial behaviour to develop understanding of spatial and physico-chemical effects on the soil bacterial community. The aims of this PhD were to address some of the fundamental questions of soil microbial ecology, by using model systems and descriptive and predictive statistics to describe and predict simple bacterial systems.
