Root Influence on Nitrogen Mineralization and Nitrification in Avena barbata Rhizosphere Soil


Micro–N pool dilution was used to quantify rates of gross N mineralization, consumption, and nitrification in bulk soil and in soil within 2 mm of root sections of Avena barbata (slender wild oats), an annual grass common to California oak woodland-savannas. Rates of gross N mineralization in rhizosphere soil (9.2 mg N kgd) were about ten times higher than… (More)
