Analysis and interpretation of soil properties dynamics is a keystone in understanding the hydrologic responses and yield potential of floodplain wetlands. This study characterizes the distribution and spatial trends of selected soil physical properties in the Kilombero floodplain, Tanzania. A total of 76 composite soil samples were taken from 0 to 20 cm and 20 to 40 cm depth in a regular grid   Those soil properties associated with probability of detecting Salmonella in the broiler litter in this study were primarily the soil texture (relative proportions of particles of different sizes) and the infiltration and drainage capabilities, i.e. the properties defining the pattern of water movement through the soil ://?id=/

The data of soil clay and its mineralogical composition were gathered through a literature survey and aggregated by soil orders of the Soil Taxonomy for each of the ten groups: gibbsite, kaolinite A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the ://

Two main groups of Vertisols are discussed in the paper. Vertisols and vertic soils from a temperate climate were studied in the southeastern European part of Russia in the North This study investigated the effects of long-term soil fertilization on the composition and potential for phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) cycling of bacterial communities associated with hyphae of the P-solubilizing fungus Penicillium canescens. Using a baiting approach, hyphosphere bacterial communities were recovered from three soils that had received long-term amendment in the field with

Soil profiles in this catchment provide the first clues to the hydrological processes (Fig. ).Below the upper layer, the basal layer often contains a gray horizon without hydromorphic properties or with introverted 1 mottling, indicating the absence of water surplus or seasonal saturation derived by perching of water percolating from the surface (stagnic properties), ://   Soil samples differed significantly in a range of soil properties (Table 1; Supplementary Table S1).

Soil pH ranged from tototal C from % to % and total N from % to % To determine the composition of the bacterial community and its relationship with soil properties, we investigated the bacterial community structure and properties of surface soil from the moist acidic tussock tundra in Council, Alaska.

We collected 70 soil samples with m intervals between sampling points from 0–10 cm to 10–20 cm ://   Three replicate soil samples were collected from each profile at the surface depth increments (0–5, 5–15, and 15–25 cm) by digging vertically from the surface at three randomly chosen locations within 5 m of the trenches.

The deeper soil samples were collected by horizontally coring from the inner walls of the :// Soil Profile. A soil profile is smaller than a pedon. It is exposed by a two-dimensional vertical cut through the soil.

It is commonly conceived as a plane at right angles to the soil surface. In practice, a description of a soil profile includes soil properties that can be determined only by inspecting volumes of ://?cid=nrcsp2_ The Soil Profile The study is aimed at assessing the seasonal variation of soil microbial biomass carbon in contaminated soil.

The dominant rock type is granodiorite, a granitoid rock intermediate in felsic and mafic composition. Granodiorite is the primary mineral parent material of the soils (Figure.

Open Access —free for readers, with article processing   A composite soil sample from the five 0–15 and 15–30 cm soil samples from each forest site was used for soil texture.

General environmental characteristics, physical, chemical and mineralogical soil data have been derived from ISIS, the ISRIC Soil Information System.

The humid zone includes 6 major soil groupings: Acrisols, Arenosols, Cambisols, Ferralsols, Luvisols and ://   In tropical rainforests, termites constitute an important part of the soil fauna biomass, and as for other soil arthropods, variations in soil composition create opportunities for niche :// This research focuses on how species composition and soil properties interact to control carbon fixation and water loss in California’s montane forests.

Two conclusions arise: (i) The amount of carbon fixed per unit of water lost via transpiration varies widely among forest stands depending on dominant tree species and their inherent leaf characteristics, and (ii) different parent   General characteristics of the soil metagenome dataset.

This study examined the chemical composition of soil organic matter (SOM) along a 2,year paddy soil chronosequence in eastern China by use of advanced solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy as well as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), aiming to identify changes in the chemical composition of SOM over a millennium ://  A total of legacy soil samples from profiles were used in this study.
