Influence of organic and mineral amendments on microbial soil properties and processes
Microbial diversity in soils is considered important for maintaining sustainability of agricultural production systems. However, the links between microbial diversity and ecosystem processes are not well understood. This ...
Effects of past and current crop management on soil microbial biomass and activity
(Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2007-06)
Because soil biota is influenced by a number of factors, including land use and management techniques, changing management practices could have significant effects on the soil microbial properties and processes. An experiment ...
Small-scale spatial variability of selected soil biological properties
A strategy for sampling soil from intact monolith lysimeters was established based on measurements of spatial heterogeneity within the lysimeter area. This was part of an ongoing study to determine relationships between ...
Phosphorus-31 nuclear magnetic resonance spectral assignments of phosphorus compounds in soil NaOH–EDTA extracts
(Soil Science Society of America, 2003)
Soil P composition can be conveniently determined in alkaline extracts using solution ³¹P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, but spectral assignments are based on fragmentary literature reports of model compounds ...
Seasonal fluctuations in phosphorus loss by leaching from a grassland soil
(Soil Science Society of America, 2004)
Phosphorus losses from soils have been reported to impair the water quality, resulting in deaths of fish and other marine animals, and can harm human health. The objective of this study was to determine the seasonal ...
Unweathered wood biochar impact on nitrous oxide emissions from a bovine-urine-amended pasture soil
(Soil Science Society of America, 2010)
Low-temperature pyrolysis of biomass produces a product known as biochar. The incorporation of this material into the soil has been advocated as a C sequestration method. Biochar also has the potential to influence the ...
