Impact of nitrogen compounds on fungal and bacterial contributions to codenitrification in a pasture soil
(Springer Nature, 2019-09-16)
Ruminant urine patches on grazed grassland are a significant source of agricultural nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions. Of the many biotic and abiotic N₂O production mechanisms initiated following urine-urea deposition, ...
Influence of copper on expression of nirS, noRrB and nosZ and the transcription and activity of NIR, NOR and N₂O in the denitrifying soil bacteria Pseudomonas stutzeri
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2016-05)
Reduction of the potent greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N₂O) occurs in soil environments by the action of denitrifying bacteria possessing nitrous oxide reductase (N₂OR), a dimeric copper (Cu)-dependent enzyme producing ...
Effect of land use and soil organic matter quality on the structure and function of microbial communities in pastoral soils: Implications for disease suppression
(Public Library of Science, 2018-05-07)
Cropping soils vary in extent of natural suppression of soil-borne plant diseases. However, it is unknown whether similar variation occurs across pastoral agricultural systems. We examined soil microbial community properties ...
Effect of nitrogen and waterlogging on denitrifier gene abundance, community structure and activity in the rhizosphere of wheat
(Oxford University Press and Blackwell Publishing Ltd on behalf of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies, 2013-03-01)
Microbial denitrification plays a key role in determining the availability of soil nitrogen (N) to plants. However, factors influencing the structure and function of denitrifier communities in the rhizosphere remain unclear. ...
