Soil nitrogen mineralization rate and nitrification rates were determined in situ and in the laboratory for a number of sites along two altitudinal transects in the scottish Highlands for four periods during the growing season. Available nitrogen, total nitrogen, ignition loss, water content and pH were determined on the same soil samples. Mineralization rates in both field and laboratory either did not change with altitude or were highest in samples from high altitudes, despite the altitudinal… CONTINUE READING
