Summary1. Studies were made on the decomposition of a substrate containing glucose, ammonia, and nitrate in soil held under differing aeration conditions.2. When water slurries were incubated with substrate, the loss of total-N equalled the loss of nitrate plus nitrite nitrogen.3. Under percolation conditions, with small amounts of substrate and an oxygen partial pressure of 15.2 cm of mercury, there was little change in nitrate or nitrite concentrations. Loss of nitrate only occurred under… Expand
