A comprehensive approach to soil‐atmosphere trace‐gas flux estimation with static chambers
A new procedure (HMR) for soil-atmosphere trace-gas flux estimation with static chambers is presented. It classifies data series into three categories according to criteria based on the applicationExpand
Algorithms for calculating methane and nitrous oxide emissions from manure management
Biogenic emissions of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) from animal manure are stimulated by the degradation of volatile solids (VS) which serves as an energy source and a sink for atmosphericExpand
Drought acclimation confers cold tolerance in the soil collembolan Folsomia candida.
Evidence is provided that the stresses exerted by desiccation and cold at the cellular level have sufficient similarities to induce overlapping adaptations and are likely to contribute to the observed cross-tolerance. Expand
Effects of Sieving, Storage, and Incubation Temperature on the Phospholipid Fatty Acid Profile of a Soil Microbial Community
Several of the changes observed at 25 degrees C could be explained with reference to mechanisms of temperature adaptation or as a response to conditions of stress, including a decrease in the degree of unsaturation, an increased production of cyclopropyl fatty acids, and increased ratios of the branched-chain fatty acids.

Nitrogen and organic matter losses during storage of cattle and pig manure
Solid pig manure (240 g kg 1 DM) and solid cattle manure (150-180 g kg 1 DM) were stored in an open storage facility during spring-summer and autumn conditions for periods of 9-14 weeks during 1994Expand
Effects of cattle slurry acidification on ammonia and methane evolution during storage.
The study suggests that complex microbial interactions involving sulfur transformations and pH determine the potential for CH(4) emission during storage of cattle slurry, and that slurry acidification may be a cost-effective greenhouse gas mitigation option. Expand
Ammonia losses from urine and dung of grazing cattle: effect of N intake
Abstract Nitrogen excretion by cattle during grazing is a significant source of atmospheric ammonia. In this study the relation between NH3 volatilization and N intake was investigated in wind tunnelExpand
Ammonia and nitrous oxide interactions: Roles of manure organic matter management
Abstract Intensification of livestock production in many parts of the world has led to increasing atmospheric losses of N in connection with storage and field application of manure. Both types ofExpand
Changes in membrane lipid composition following rapid cold hardening in Drosophila melanogaster.
Cold selection resulted in PLFA changes, which may improve the ability to harden during RCH, which is consistent with the membrane response typically found during cold acclimation in ectothermic animals and likely adaptive to maintain membrane function during cold. Expand
