Relationships between bacterial productivity and organic carbon at a soil—stream interface

  title={Relationships between bacterial productivity and organic carbon at a soil—stream interface},
  author={William V. Sobczak and Lars O. Hedin and Michael J. Klug},
Microbial communities at soil-stream interfaces may be particularly important in regulating amounts and forms of nutrients that leave upland soils and enter stream ecosystems. While microbial communities are thought to be responsible for key nutrient transformations within near-stream sediments, there is relatively little mechanistic information on factors that control microbial activities in these areas. In this study, we examine the roles of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) vs. particulate… CONTINUE READING
