Responses of Soil Microbial Community Composition and Enzyme Activities to Land-Use Change in the Eastern Tibetan Plateau, China
The land-use change is a major determinant influencing ecosystem carbon (C) patterns and nutrient cycling in subalpine forests in the Eastern Tibetan Plateau. While some results have been obtained in
Fine Root Dynamics in Three Forest Types with Different Origins in a Subalpine Region of the Eastern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
The natural regeneration procedure after clear-cutting in the subalpine region of western Sichuan seems to be superior from the perspective of fine root dynamics.
Decomposition of Leaves and Fine Roots in Three Subtropical Plantations in China Affected by Litter Substrate Quality and Soil Microbial Community
This work demonstrates that litter decomposition was linked to substrate quality and to the structure of soil microbial communities, and evidences the probable role of E. fordii in increasing soil nutrient availability, especially N, P and Ca.
Seasonal dynamics of soil respiration and nitrification in three subtropical plantations in southern China
Soil respiration and gross nitrification showed strong seasonal dynamics, although no significant differences were observed among plantations, and carbon and nitrogen turnover rates were mostly controlled by soil temperature and soil water content.
[Soil microbial community structure of monoculture and mixed plantation stands of native tree species in south subtropical China].
Redundancy analysis (RDA) of soil microbial community structure and environmental factors showed that soil temperature and moisture, pH, total nitrogen content, and ammonium nitrogen content had significant correlations with PLFA signatures.
Impacts of nitrogen-fixing and non-nitrogen-fixing tree species on soil respiration and microbial community composition during forest management in subtropical China
Forest management with N-fixing trees can improve soil fertility and tree productivity, but have little information regarding belowground carbon processes and microbial properties. We aimed to
[Effects of salt stress on growth, photosynthetic and fluorescence characteristics, and root architecture of Corylus heterophylla ×C. avellan seedlings].
The results showed that the new shoot length, basal diameter, leaf area, root biomass, shoot biomass, leaf biomass, and total biomass of the three varieties all decreased, but the root-shoot ratio increased with increasing salt stress.
[Characteristics of soil microbial biomass and community composition in three types of plantations in southern subtropical area of China].
It is suggested that the soil organic carbon, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus contents were the most important nutrient factors affecting the numbers and types of the soil microorganisms.
[Short-term effects of litter treatment on soil C and N transformation and microbial community structure in Erythrophleum fordii plantation.]
There were significant seasonal variations in soil respiration and gross nitrification rates under different litter treatments, with significantly higher rates in the rainy season than in the dry season.
