Interactions between microclimatic variables and the soil microbial biomass

  title={Interactions between microclimatic variables and the soil microbial biomass},
  author={David A Wardle and Dennis Parkinson},
  journal={Biology and Fertility of Soils},
Soil moisture, temperature, microbial substrate-induced respiration and basal respiration were monitored in two plots in an agricultural field from April 30 to September 25, 1987, and in a further two plots from May 26 to August 27, 1988. An attempt to relate biological variables to microclimatic variables was made through the use of correlation analysis. The microbial substrate-induced and basal respiration were both strongly positively correlated with the soil moisture content, and to a… CONTINUE READING
