Labile C fractions: microbial biomass C (MBC), K2SO4 extractable C ( $$ {\text{C}}_{{{\text{K}}_{ 2} {\text{SO}}_{ 4} }} $$ ) and the cumulated mineralized C in 21 days incubation at 28°C (C–CO2(21d)), were compared as land use indicators in a calcareous soil under three different management systems: native Querqus ilex forest (under and outside tree cover), a Pinus halepensis plantation, and cropped land (with cereals). Microbial biomass and activity were found to be low and coincided with… CONTINUE READING
