In arable systems, seasonal fluctuations of microbiological properties can be significant. We hypothesized that adaptation to soil environmental conditions may contribute to the variation observed, and this was examined by characterization of different microbial community attributes under a range of soil conditions. Soil was sampled from no-till and chisel-tilled fields within a long-term experiment in eastern Washington during growth of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum ). The range of soil… Expand

Soil microbial communities under different soybean cropping systems: characterization of microbial population dynamics, soil microbial activity, microbial biomass, and fatty acid profiles.
TLDR
Soil microbial respiration, biomass and activity were higher under zero tillage than under reduced tillage, both at planting and harvest sampling times, and appropriate crop management is necessary for a sustainable productivity without reducing soil quality. Expand
Response of soil microbial communities to different farming systems for upland soybean cultivation
TLDR
It is suggested that Gram-positive bacteria should be considered as potential factor responsible for the clear microbial community differentiation observed between OFS and CFS in upland fields. Expand
Effect of cropping system and seasonal variation on soil microbial biomass and enzymatic activities in arid soils.
TLDR
It is suggested that the inclusion of leguminous crops in cropping system is more suitable for arid areas, which tend to sustain soil fertility and preserve soil microbial biomass. Expand

Seasonal changes in soil microbial communities along a fertility gradient of temperate grasslands
TLDR
The findings of this study support the thesis that fungi play a more significant role in soil biological processes of low-input, unfertilized grasslands, than in intensively managed systems. Expand
Determinants of Soil Microbial Communities: Effects of Agricultural Management, Season, and Soil Type on Phospholipid Fatty Acid Profiles
TLDR
Redundancy analysis ordination showed thatPLFA profiles from organic and conventional systems were significantly different from April to July, and measures of the microbial community and soil properties were seldom associated with the variation in the PLFA profiles. Expand
Comparison of substrate utilization assay and fatty acid analysis of soil microbial communities
TLDR
Two methods for the characterization of microbial communities in field soil samples were compared and certain shifts in microbial communities were detected by fatty acid analysis but not by carbon utilization assay, suggesting thatChanges in microbial species composition occurred that were not accompanied by changes in microbial community function.

Ratios of microbial biomass carbon to total organic carbon in arable soils
TLDR
A comparative regression analysis of permanent monoculture plots with continuous crop rotation plots showed both to be highly significantly different at the P = 0.001 level: the regression line of continuous crop rotations shows a steeper slope, suggesting that a higher concentration of microbial carbon is characteristic of the crop rotation.

Low-Substrate Regulated Microaerophilic Behavior as a Stress Response of Aquatic and Soil Bacteria
TLDR
Low-substrate regulated microaerophilic behavior (LSRMB) was observed in 10–54% of the bacteria isolated from several fresh-water lakes or ponds, subsurface soils, activated sludge, and Antarctic dry valley soils and it is hypothesis that LSRMB is a common but under-appreciated trait of many aquatic and soil bacteria.
