We investigated the possibility of composting onion waste to destroy any sclerotia present and then applying the composted waste to soil to stimulate sclerotial germination to disinfest the soil of the white rot fungus. Three mixtures of dry (shale-skins or onion tops) and wet (peelings or...
Fungi and bacteria govern most of the transformations and ensuing long-term storage of organic C in soils. We assessed the relative contributions of these two groups of organisms to the microbial biomass and activity of soils from five different ecosystems with treatments hypothesized to enhance...
To measure P transfers, two small pots, placed 1 cm apart and each containing one leek ( Allium porrum L.) plant, were embedded within a larger sand volume. Mesh windows on the facing pot sides allowed the penetration of hyphae but not roots. The effect of earthworms ( Aporrectodea caliginosa...
Net nitrification in intact soil cores and the community of ammonia-oxidising bacteria were studied in acid Norway spruce ( Picea abies (L.) Karst) and sessile oak ( Quercus petraea (Matt. Lieb.)) soils (Haute Ardenne, east Belgium) 18 months after treatment with 5 t ha −1 dolomite lime. Liming...
This study examined the effect of nitrogen fertilization (0, 4 or 8 mmol N added kg −1 soil) on plant growth, nitrate reductase activity (NR) (EC 126.96.36.199) and protein content in Medicago sativa . Plants were inoculated with two strains of Sinorhizobium meliloti (the wild type (WT) strain GR4...
Three different tropical rain forest sites in Northeast Queensland, Australia, two in the Coastal Lowlands (Pin Gin Hill and Bellenden Ker) and one on the Atherton Tablelands (Kauri Creek), were investigated for the magnitude of N 2 O and CO 2 emissions from soils during the wet and the dry...
Discontinuous permafrost in peatlands has recently been melting across western Canada, creating wet Sphagnum-Carex lawns (internal lawns) interspersed within drier ombrotrophic bog. Permafrost degradation alters peat hydrology, thermal regimes and plant species assemblages, all of which could...
Possible interactions between mycorrhiza, atmospheric CO 2 , free-living soil microorganisms and protozoa were investigated in pot experimental systems. Pea plants ( Pisum sativum L. cv. Solara) were grown under ambient (360 μl l −1 ) or elevated (700 μl l −1 ) atmospheric CO 2...
We measured effects of Pseudomonas putida WCS358r and its genetically modified phenazine producing derivative on the Fusarium population in the soil of a wheat field in the Netherlands. We used 18S rDNA analysis to study the Fusarium population through a strategy based on screening clone...
