Soil microbial community response to surfactants and herbicides in two soils
Abstract The environmental impacts of herbicides on desirable plants and the soil biota are of public concern. The surfactants that are often used with herbicides are also under scrutiny asExpand

Effects of long-term prescribed burning on the activity of select soil enzymes in an oak-hickory forest
In low-input or unmanaged ecosystems, the relationship between soil enzyme activity and plant biomass is expected and may be used as an early and sensitive indicator of soil productivity. This studyExpand

Greenhouse gases fluxes and soil thermal properties in a pasture in central Missouri.
Fluctuations of greenhouse gases emissions and soil properties occur at short spatial and temporal scales, however, results are often reported for larger scales studies. We monitored CO2, CH4, andExpand
