RATIONALE Carbohydrates represent up to 25% of soil organic matter and derive from fresh plant input or organic matter transformation within the soil. Compound-specific isotope analysis (CSIA) of monosaccharides (sugars) extracted from soil provides a powerful tool to disentangle the dynamics of different carbohydrate pools of soils. The use of high-performance liquid chromatography/oxidation/isotope ratio mass spectrometry (HPLC/o/IRMS) allows isotope measurements without the need for… CONTINUE READING
