Chitin added to sand-soil based cultivation substrates stimulated the root colonization, growth of extraradical mycelium and production of spores of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in three experiments with Allium amppelloprasum , Plantago lanceolata and Lactuca sativa as host plants....
The spectrum and densities of soil nematode species were studied in an extensively managed sub-thermophilous meadow and in conventionally managed and abandoned fallow fields left to natural succession. In the meadow, 115 species and 71 genera of soil nematodes were found and the total mean...
Decomposition and mineralisation rates generally increase with increasing moisture and temperature. The expected global climate change may enhance precipitation and raise the temperatures at boreal latitudes, but absence of snow together with occasional low temperatures may cause disturbances in...
A legume introduced into a new area will only form nodules and fix nitrogen if compatible rhizobia are present in the soil. Using 25 (60 in the case of Sesbania sesban ) soils sampled from tropical areas of Africa, Asia and Latin America, we examined the nodulation of four agroforestry tree...
Simple structures aimed at regulating the amount of rain water dropping into the forest floor were installed to determine the impact of rainfall on leaf litter mass loss, respiration rates, microbial biomass C (C mic ) and metabolic quotient ( q CO 2 ). The rainfall manipulation treatments were...
We examined the response of the temperature coefficient ( Q 10 ) for soil respiration rate to changes in environmental temperature through a laboratory incubation experiment. Soil samples were collected from three climatic areas: arctic (Svalbard, Norway), temperate (Tsukuba, Japan) and tropical...
A soil microcosm study was carried out to compare the effects of straw, vegetable oil or whey additions on physical and microbiological properties of a chernozem after 18 weeks of incubation. The application rates of the different organic materials were based on the addition of carbon at a...
Root distribution and mycorrhizal associations were compared in primary, secondary and limestone forests in Xishuangbanna, southwest China. Soil cores to a depth of 20 cm were collected at random points from four 50 m 2 quadrats in each forest type. Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) associations were...
