Based on in-depth contributions from leading scientists, this book provides an integrated view of the current and emerging methods and concepts applied in soil carbon research. It contains a standardised protocol for measuring soil CO2 efflux, designed to improve future assessments of regional and global patterns of soil carbon dynamics.communities from crude-oil contaminated tundra soils were dominated by generalist bacteria, while control soils were dominated by specialists. ... 2006), which is the proportion of utilized substrate-carbon that is assimilated into microbial biomass. ... high SUE, while microbes that are stressed or starved will respire more of the carbon for maintenance and so have low SUE (Fierer and Schimel, 2002).
