Validating novel oligonucleotide primers targeting three classes of bacterial non-specific acid phosphatase genes in grassland soils
(Springer International Publishing, 2018-06)
Background and aims: Microbially driven mineralization of organic phosphorus forms is of particular importance in the soil environment, where it becomes available to plants as inorganic orthophosphates. In acidic soils, ...
Soil microbial communities influencing organic phosphorus mineralization in a coastal dune chronosequence in New Zealand
(Oxford University Press on behalf of FEMS, 2021-04)
The Haast chronosequence in New Zealand is an ∼6500-year dune formation series, characterized by rapid podzol development, phosphorus (P) depletion and a decline in aboveground biomass. We examined bacterial and fungal ...
Effect of long-term plant biomass management on phosphatase-producing bacterial populations in soils under temperate grassland
(Elsevier B.V., 2020-07)
Organic forms of phosphorus (P) account for over half of the total P present in most soils and make a significant contribution to P cycling and plant nutrition through the actions of various plant and microbial phosphatase ...
