Nitrous oxide consumption potentials of well - drained forest soils in 1 southern Québec , Canada

Abstract

A 5 6 7 8 9 A. ABSTRACT 22 To establish the major controls on N 2 O consumption by forest soils, we conducted 23 laboratory incubations of sixteen samples from four soil types, two organic and two 24 mineral, varying in overlying forest vegetation (sugar maple, American beech and eastern 25 hemlock). The fastest potential consumption of N 2 O occurred under anoxic conditions 26 with little soil nitrate and under elevated headspace N 2 O concentration. Potential N 2 O 27 consumption rates were fastest in organic soils under hemlock and beech trees (111 and 28 75 ng N 2 ON g-1 d-1 , respectively) compared to mineral soils under beech and maple trees 29
