Bt- corn is genetically engineered to express proteins from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis which presents specific toxicity to targeted insect pests. One type of Bt- corn expresses the Cry1Ab protein that provides protection against certain lepidopteran pests, mainly the...
Water soluble anionic polyacrylamide (PAM) is a highly effective erosion preventing and infiltration enhancing polymer, when applied at rates of 1–10 g m −3 in furrow irrigation water. PAM greatly reduces sediment, nutrients, pesticides and coliform bacteria in irrigation runoff. There has...
In this study, we used a DNA fingerprinting technique (PCR-DGGE) to investigate if bacteria present in an activated EM suspension (EM-A) were able to maintain or reach significant relative abundances after addition to slurry manure. We also investigated effects of the addition of EM-A to slurry...
Termites, ants and earthworms are considered as soil engineers because of their effects on soil properties and their influence on the availability of resources for other organisms, including microorganisms and plants. However, the links between their impacts on the soil environment and the...
Nutrient availability regulates the responses of high-latitude ecosystems to climate change but nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur biogeochemistry, especially, phosphorus and sulfur cycles, are poorly understood in Alpine tundra ecosystem. This study examines the cycling of nutrients in a...
The different kind of soil nematode structures, based on the proportions of different orders, trophic groups and individuals belonging to groups with different life history strategies were studied in grasslands transformed by drainage of natural fens, situated at Biebrza Wetland in Poland....
Emissions of N 2 O from soils of the Southwestern US are thought to result from the activity of anaerobic denitrifying bacteria, but the seasonal dryness and sandy texture of these soils are more conducive to the activities of aerobic microbes. Here, we present incubations of semiarid soils with...
This work undertakes the biochemical characterization of olive-orchard soils cultivated under three different management systems: conventional, integrated, and organic. The orchards are located in two districts of Andalusia (S Spain): Pedroches Valley (Cordoba province) and Montes Orientales...
Persistence of the soyabean rhizobial inoculant strain MAR 1491 was assessed in 52 soils from Guruve, Hurungwe and Goromonzi districts of Zimbabwe, which had been inoculated 1–4 or 6 years previously. Most probable number estimates of rhizobia in the soils showed that population sizes decreased...
