Microbial and abiotic controls on mineral-associated organic matter in soil profiles along an ecosystem gradient
(Nature Research, 2019-07-16)
Formation of mineral-organic associations is a key process in the global carbon cycle. Recent concepts propose litter quality-controlled microbial assimilation and direct sorption processes as main factors in transferring ...
Mineralogical impact on long-term patterns of soil nitrogen and phosphorus enzyme activities
(Elsevier Science, 2014-01)
During long-term ecosystem development, both soil mineralogical composition and nutrient contents change, thus possibly altering microbial nutrient cycling by constraining substrate accessibility. In addressing the mineral ...
