Estimation of the microbial biomass in tidal flat sediment by fumigation-extraction


A transect of ten profiles was laid out in 20 m intervals on a tidal sand flat approximately 100 m from the east shore of Sylt until the next tideway was reached. Sediment samples were taken from 0–2 cm depth (oxic layer) and 2–4 cm depth (anoxic layer). The average content of organic carbon (C) was 2.41 mg g−1 in the oxic layer and 1.86 mg g−1 in the… (More)
