The oxidation of ammonia to nitrate, known as nitrification, is a key process in the nitrogen cycle. Real-time polymerase chain-reaction measurements show that nitrification is driven by bacteria rather than archaea in nitrogen-rich grassland soils in New Zealand. The oxidation of ammonia to nitrate, nitrification, is a key process in the nitrogen cycle. Ammonia-oxidizing archaea are present in large numbers in the ocean1,2,3 and soils4,5,6, suggesting a potential role for archaea, in addition… Expand
