Abstract The present work focuses on the subalpine range of the Italian Alps to determine the influence of aspect and consequently climate on soil humus properties and chemistry. This was done by comparing soils developing in north- and south-facing sites on siliceous parent material. The soils were investigated with respect to the total organic C and N content, C and N contents of organic matter (OM) density fractions and of labile (oxidised by H 2 O 2 ) and stable (H 2 O 2 -resistant… CONTINUE READING
