Journal ArticleDOI

Fast turnover of low molecular weight components of the dissolved organic carbon pool of temperate grassland field soils

TL;DR: In this article, a first-order double exponential model fitted the experimental data well and gave rate constant (k) values of 1.21-2.14 h−1 for k1 and 0.0025-0.0048 h− 1 for k2.
Journal ArticleDOI

Root exudate components change litter decomposition in a simulated rhizosphere depending on temperature.

TL;DR: It is concluded that the addition of labile root exudate components to the rhizosphere induced a small but significant increase on litter decomposition but that the magnitude of this effect was regulated by temperature.
Journal ArticleDOI

Decoupling of microbial glucose uptake and mineralization in soil

TL;DR: In this paper, a double first order kinetic equation was used to estimate the first phase of respiration at natural soil solution glucose concentrations to be 6-8min, but at least 87% of the added glucose was retained in the microbial biomass prior to mineralization.
Journal ArticleDOI

Vascular plant success in a warming Antarctic may be due to efficient nitrogen acquisition

TL;DR: Research demonstrates that via a short circuit in the terrestrial nitrogen cycle, Antarctic hair grass acquires soil nitrogen more efficiently than competing mosses, which may explain its success in a warming maritime Antarctic.
Journal ArticleDOI

Soil microbial organic nitrogen uptake is regulated by carbon availability

TL;DR: It is concluded that LMWDON is taken up primarily to fulfil the C requirement of soil microorganisms, indicating that they exist in a C-limited state, and are able to respond quickly to a transient influx of an easily metabolisable resource.
