Professor GE Tida has studied and worked in various universities and institutes worldwide: China, UK, Germany, USA and Japan. He is an expert in soil ecology, biogeochemistry, land use and agroecology, especially in the field of rhizosphere processes, and C and N cycling. Tida and his group have long-term and rich experience in soil biogeochemical processes of C and N cycles, priming effects and nutrient mobilization. His special interests are in soil – plant – microbial interactions in hotspots, i.e. locations with very high activity and abundance of microorganisms like rhizosphere and detritusphere. Tida's current research is mainly in the fields of rice rhizodeposition, low molecular weight organic substances in soil, priming effects, visualization of enzyme activities, microbial metabolism in soil, microbial C use strategies, and soil resource stoichiometry. To understand the mechanisms of process, Tida's group uses a broad range of stable (13C, 15N) and radioactive (14C, 33P) isotopes applications including pioneering position specific labeling and combines these approaches with biomarkers (DNA/PLFA/necromass-SIP) as well as microbial activity parameters. Tida is an active member of several editorial boards, such as Associate Editor in Soil Science Society of America Journal and Frontiers in Agronomy, editor and guest editor in Soil Ecology Letter, Biology and Fertility of Soils, Plant and Soil etc.
