The capacity to form acetate from endogenous matter was a common property of diverse forest soils when incubated under anaerobic conditions. At 15 to 20(deg)C, acetate synthesis occurred without appreciable delay when forest soils were incubated as buffered suspensions or in microcosms at various percentages of their maximum water holding capacity. Rates for acetate formation with soil suspensions ranged from 35 to 220 (mu)g of acetate per g (dry weight) of soil per 24 h, and maximal acetate… CONTINUE READING
