A number of approaches have been used to model and thus describe N mineralization kinetics in soils. In this paper, we review and present a comparative evaluation of some approaches to modelling adopted for this purpose. These may broadly be categorized as: (1) simple functional approaches to predict net N mineralization and, (2) mechanistic approaches that include a description of microbial biomass processes to predict long-term C and N turnover in soils. The following conclusions emerged… CONTINUE READING
