The seasonal fluctuations in the concentration of cultured denitrifying and N2-fixing bacteria were followed in an ammonium fertilised and a control soil of a Norway spruce forest near Villingen/Black Forest from December 1994 to August 1998. The horizontal distribution of bacteria in three layers was determined by the MPN-method and by molecular probing (colony hybridisation) using specific 0.4–0.7 kb DNA probes for denitrification steps (narG, nirS, nirK and nosZ) and for N2-fixation (nifH… CONTINUE READING
