The activity and biomass of denitrifying microorganisms were determined in nine types of soils with different degrees of salinization. The dependence between the decrease in N 2 O consumption and the increase in salinization is shown. The unusual character of denitrification in saline soils is revealed in the slower denitrification at the stage of nitrous oxide formation. For the first time, the high susceptibility of nitrous oxide reductase to salts was demonstrated on an analytically pure… Expand
Molecular analysis of the diversity of nitrifying bacteria in the soils of the forest and steppe zones of European Russia
Soil samples collected in the forest and steppe areas of European Russia and enrichment cultures of nitrifying bacteria isolated from these samples were used for molecular studies of the diversity of the amoA gene encoding the synthesis of the key enzyme of autotrophic ammonium oxidation. Expand
Effect of Siberian tree species on N2O production and consumption
Doubled N2O emission from Siberian forest soils to the atmosphere can be expected due to changes in tree species composition of forest ecosystems even without considering changes in water and temperature regimes in soil. Expand
The microbiological activity and toxicity of oil-polluted playa solonchaks and filled grounds within the Severnye Buzachi Oil Field (Kazakhstan)
The number of colony-forming units of microorganisms, the viable biomass, and also the intensity of the microbiological processes (respiration, nitrogen fixation, denitrification, and celluloseExpand
Biogeochemistry of N2O Uptake and Consumption in Submerged Soils and Rice Fields and Implications in Climate Change
Submerged soils and rice fields are known sources of nitrous oxide (N2O) but also act as its sinks. Nitrous oxide uptake (movement from atmosphere into soil) and consumption (conversion of N2O to N2)Expand
Soils, a sink for N2O? A review
Soils are the main sources of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O). The N2O emission at the soil surface is the result of production and consumption processes. So far, research has concentrated onExpand
The influence of tree species on the biomass of denitrifying bacteria in gray forest soils
The biomass of two groups of microorganisms was studied in gray forest soils under six tree species (spruce, Scotch pine, Arolla pine, larch, birch, and aspen) and in the soil of a layland (aExpand
Impact of CULTAN fertilization with ammonium sulfate on field emissions of nitrous oxide
Abstract Agricultural soils have a great share on global nitrous oxide (N 2 O) emissions. The method of nitrogen fertilization is a manageable control parameter of N 2 O production in soil.Expand
Nitrous oxide emission from Australian agricultural lands and mitigation options: a review
Increases in the concentrations of greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and halocarbons in the atmosphere due to human activities are associated with globalExpand
Land Use and Land Management Effects on Nitrous Oxide Fluxes
The terrestrial ecosystems are the major source of N2O contributing about 65% of global emissions. Agricultural activities are the most important anthropogenic N2O emissions, accounting for 60–80% ofExpand
Salt intrusion alters nitrogen cycling in tidal reaches as determined in field and laboratory investigations.
This study suggests that saltwater intrusion leads to a decrease in nitrification while favoring N transformation via denitrification and DNRA and that N2O accumulation in the water is dependent on the strength of the salt pulse. Expand


Characterization ofAzospirillum and related diazotrophs associated with roots of plants growing in saline soils
The shape and the protein profile on SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoretograms suggested that the group of these five isolates is clearly distinct and differs widely from all the type strains, belonging to various genera. Expand
