Soil surface CO2 efflux is comprised of CO2 from (i) root respiration and rhizosphere microbes and (ii) heterotrophic respiration from the breakdown of soil organic matter (SOM). This efflux may be partitioned between these sources using delta13C measurements. To achieve this, continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometry can be used and, in conjunction with 10 mL septum-capped vials, large numbers of samples may be analysed using a Finnigan MAT Delta(plus)XP interfaced to a Gas Bench II… CONTINUE READING
