Microbial biomass C and ATP were measured in 10 forest soils that ranged in pH from 3.2 to 7.2. A close relationship (r = 0.85) between biomass C (measured by the fumigation-incubation method, using the CO2-C evolved from the non-fumigated soil in 10 days as the control) and ATP was obtained in soils with pH ⩾ 4.2. The average biomass ATP concentration was 9.1 βmol ATP g−1 biomass C, similar to that found in earlier studies for soils above pH 4.2. There was also good agreement (r = 0.87… CONTINUE READING
