Link (expring on March 4th, 2022): https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1ePUpB8ccudKN Rock weathering and pedogenesis are fundamental processes for element mobility in terrestrial bio-geochemical cycles and for the regulation of primary productivity in adjacent coastal marine ecosystems. Here, soils developed from volcanic ash under extreme climate cond...
Recent findings on soil organic matter (SOM) revealed that soil microorganisms are not only crucial for SOM formation through plant litter degradation but soil microbial biomass (SMB) may also directly contribute to SOM and its composition. However, the role and interactions of litter quality, microbial turnover and composition of SMB and SOM remai...
The knowledge of tree species dependent turnover of soil organic matter (SOM) is limited, yet required to understand the carbon sequestration function of forest soil. We combined investigations of 13C and 15N and its relationship to elemental stoichiometry along soil depth gradients in 35-year old monocultural stands of Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga men...
The purpose of this research was to evaluate tree species effects on quantitative and qualitative soil organic matter (SOM) properties of forest floors and mineral soil layers. Additionally, the contribution of soil microbial biomass to SOM was studied in five forest stands with different dominant tree species. The study was conducted at the affor...
