Soil microbial biomass, activity and nutrient cycling as indicators of soil health
Capacity of fatty acid profiles and substrate utilization patterns to describe differences in soil microbial communities associated with increased salinity or alkalinity at three locations in South…
Abstract Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) profiles, together with Biolog substrate utilization patterns, were used in conjunction with measurements of other soil chemical and microbiological properties… Expand
Use of fatty acids for identification of AM fungi and estimation of the biomass of AM spores in soil
Abstract Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis performed on the spores of four arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (Glomus coronatum, Glomus mosseae, Gigaspora margarita and Scutellospora calospora)… Expand
The potential use of soil enzymes as indicators of productivity, sustainability and pollution.
Evaluation of soil biological properties as potential bioindicators of soil health
Two long-term field trials in South Australia were used to detect and characterise changes in soil biological properties that were a consequence of different agricultural management. The properties… Expand

Using the Gini coefficient with BIOLOG substrate utilisation data to provide an alternative quantitative measure for comparing bacterial soil communities
A measure quantifying unequal use of carbon sources, the Gini coefficient (G), has been developed to allow comparisons of the observed functional diversity of bacterial soil communities. This… Expand
