Wetlands have been widely applied for water quality amelioration. Enzymatic analysis was applied in a study of decomposition in constructed wetlands. We hypothesise that soil enzyme activities would be lower in wetland sediment than adjacent upland and that the lower soil enzyme activities are partly responsible for the water quality amelioration. Four soil enzyme activities (β-glucosidase, β-N-acetylglucosaminidase, phosphatase, and arylsulfatase) and microbial activity (electron transport… CONTINUE READING
