Annual N input measured by periodic sampling in a young Willamette Valley Douglas-fir plantation at Adair, Oregon was +_ kg/ha. [superscript Introduction. Biological di-nitrogen (N 2) fixation is the major natural source of new N to tropical forests and is thought to influence whether N or phosphorus (P) limits the ability of these forests to respond to CO 2 fertilization.The macronutrient P has for a long time been thought to limit N 2 fixation in tropical forests, but some observations question how generalizable this might by: Asymbiotic N fixation will be quantified in different substrates (soil and leaf litter) of fire-affected forests and savannas in southern Amazonia (Objective 1) and under contrasting land use and.

Asymbiotic nitrogen fixation in litter from Pacific Northwest forests. Can. For. Res. Asymbiotic nitrogen fixation in litter was assayed by acetylene reduction across a range of 25 forested sites in the Willamette Valley and Oregon Cascade and Coast ranges and periodically over a year at two Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii.

Nitrogenase activity as measured by acetylene reduction and nitrogen fixation as measured by 15 N 2 uptake is widespread in forest litter, decaying wood and the lichen Lobaria in Pacific Northwest forests. In all cases the activity of nitrogenase is enhanced by addition of plant nutrient solutions and this is shown to be a specific molybdenum effect.

Biological nitrogen fixation in two tropical forests: ecosystem-level patterns and effects of nitrogen fertilization. Changes in asymbiotic, heterotrophic nitrogen fixation on leaf litter of Metrosideros polymorpha with long-term ecosystem development in Hawaii.

Despite the importance of tropical forests in global biogeochemical cycles 4,7,8, little is known about factors that control nitrogen fixation in these observation that highly. Michael J.

We measured nitrogenase activity (acetylene reduction) of asymbiotic, heterotrophic, nitrogen-fixing bacteria on leaf litter from the tree Metrosideros polymorpha collected from six sites on the Hawaiian archipelago.

At all sites M. polymorpha was the dominant tree, and its litter was the most abundant on the forest floor. The sites spanned a soil chronosequence of to million y. We allowed leaf litter from eight species of tree, shrub, or herb, ranging in lignin content from to %, to decompose in laboratory microcosms for up to 4 mo (equivalent to —2 yr decay in the field) to test two hypotheses: (1) that the lignin: nitrogen ratio would have a better correlation with mass loss rates than would the C:N.

water, soil, rocks and leaf litter (Dynarski and Houlton ). Global terrestrial N inputs from biological N fixation have been estimated at 60 Tg y−1 (Vitousek et al. ), and biome-level comparisons suggest that tropical rain forests may fix more N than any other unmanaged ecosystem (Galloway et.

Plant and Soil 4:. Symbiotic N fixation occurs via bacteria living in symbiotic association with higher plant hosts that allocate fixed C to N‐fixing bacteria in exchange for N. Asymbiotic, or free‐living, N fixation is carried out by heterotrophic or autotrophic bacteria or archaea inhabiting water, soil, rocks or leaf litter, or in associations with moss or.Increases in bioavailable nitrogen (N) level can impact the soil carbon (C) sequestration in many forest ecosystems through its influences on litter decomposition and soil respiration (Rs).

This study aims to detect whether the litter management can affect the influence of N addition on Rs. We conducted a one-year field experiment in a camphor forest of central-south China to investigate the.
