Studies have shown that physical and chemical properties of soils may be significantly changed when they are subjected to long-term reclaimed water irrigation. It remains unclear how reclaimed water application may affect nutrient cycling in soils. Soil enzymes are responsible for the biogeochemical cycling of many elements and are more sensitive indicators of the ecological changes. In this study, 17 soil enzymes, including those associated with the C, N, P, and S cycles and two… CONTINUE READING
