Effect of climate/soil moisture content on aluminium toxicity and carbon stocks of two high country soils under glasshouse conditions
(Lincoln University, 2015)
Aluminium (Al) toxicity is a key factor limiting pasture production in the high country of New Zealand. Many high country soils are acidic, with a pH less than 5.5. Low soil pH makes Al soluble, leading to high concentations ...
Co-occurring increased phosphatase activity and labile P depletion in the rhizosphere of Lupinus angustifolius assessed with a novel, combined 2D-imaging approach
Innovative non-destructive 2D imaging methods such as zymography and diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) have been developed recently to assess the distribution of phosphatase activity and labile solutes at the root-soil ...
The relationship between soil moisture and soil water repellency persistence in hydrophobic soils
In this work, we modelled the response of soil water repellency (SWR) persistence to the decrease in moisture in drying soils, and we explored the implication of soil particle size distribution and specific surface area ...
