Potential C and N mineralization and soil microbial biomass C (SMBC) are soil biological properties important in understanding nutrient and organic matter dynamics. Knowledge of soil water content at a matric potential near ®eld capacity is needed to determine these biological properties. The objective of this study was to examine whether adjustment of soil water content to a common level of water-®lled pore space (WFPS) may be an acceptable alternative that would require little prior analysis… CONTINUE READING
