Competition and community succession link N transformation and greenhouse gas emissions in urine patches
Nitrous oxide (N₂O) is a strong greenhouse gas produced by biotic/abiotic processes directly linked to both fungal and prokaryotic communities that produce, consume or create conditions leading to its emission. In soils ...
Gross N transformations vary with soil moisture and time following urea deposition to a pasture soil
Ruminant urine patches in grazed grasslands significantly change the chemical and biological properties of the affected soils due to the predominance of urea within ruminant urine and the high rates deposited onto pastures. ...
Impacts of pasture species and ruminant urine on N₂O emissions and nitrogen transforming microbial communities in soil mesocosms
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2020-11-22)
Multispecies grasslands can alter nitrogen (N) cycling processes. A mesocosm experiment was performed comparing bare soil, soil planted with perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne), white clover (Trifolium repens), plantain ...
