The treatment of manures may improve their agricultural value and environmental quality, for instance with regards to greenhouse gases mitigation and enhancement of carbon (C) sequestration. The present study verified whether different pig slurry treatments (i.e. solid/liquid separation and...
Nematodes and flagellates are important bacterial predators in soil and sediments. Generally, these organisms are considered to be competitors for bacterial food. We studied the interaction among flagellates and nematodes using axenic liquid cultures amended with heat-killed bacteria as food and...
Trophic groups and functional guilds of soil nematodes were measured under four mine tailing subsystems in the Baoshan lead/zinc mine, Hunan Province, southern China to test the indicator value of nematodes for heavy metal pollution. No obvious correlation was found between heavy metal...
The substrate availability for microbial biomass (MB) in soil is crucial for microbial biomass activity. Due to the fast microbial decomposition and the permanent production of easily available substrates in the rooted top soil mainly by plants during photosynthesis, easily available substrates...
The application of soil solarization (SS), one of the most promising techniques for the control of soilborne pathogens, is seriously limited by the drawback regarding the disposal of the used plastic materials. A possible solution to this problem is the use of biodegradable plastics. The aim of...
Phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) analysis and amino sugars analysis were compared with respect to their capacity to reliably indicate microbial biomass and gross community structure (e.g. fungi to bacteria ratio). We sampled three sets of soils beneath dominant canopy-tree species in an old growth...
Hydromorphic soils should exhibit higher climate change feedback potentials than well aerated soils since soil organic matter (SOM) losses in them are predicted to be much larger than those of well aerated soils. To evaluate a combined feedback relationship between groundwater level (GWL) and...
The filamentous fungi Trichoderma spp. is currently developed as biocontrol agents against many plant pathogens. Recent studies have shown that these fungi are able to infect nematode eggs and juveniles. In this research, biological control of root-knot nematode ( Meloidogyne javanica ) by...
Recovery of soil organic matter, organic matter turnover and mineral nutrient cycling is critical to the success of rehabilitation schemes following major ecosystem disturbance. We investigated successional changes in soil nutrient contents, microbial biomass and activity, C utilisation...
