Researchers Isolate a new Pseudomonas Strain that Can Produce Biosurfactants without Air Injection

Researchers from the Institute of Applied Ecology of CAS isolated an indigenous strain, Pseudomonas aeruginosa DQ3 from Daqing oil reservoir production water. They found that the strain could anaer...

Scientists Find Unexpectedly High N Isotope Fractionation during Denitrification in Forest Soils

Denitrification has been considered a major process removing available N from ecosystems and also a major mechanism leading N limitation of ecosystems. However, the denitrification rates are diffic...

Researchers Find Rhizosphere Priming Effects of Trees with and without Intraspecific Competition ...

Research have shown that the rhizosphere priming effects (RPEs) apparently affect the organic matter decomposition and nutrient (especially Nitrogen) cycling.

Scientists Find Effect of Nitrogen deposition on Soil Microbial Diversity

N deposition is one of the important factors affecting the global change. Research shows that the N deposition will increase continually in the coming decades. By simulation of N deposition experim...

Scientists Find Effect of Freeze-Thaw Cycles on Terrestrial Nitrogen Cycling

Freeze-thaw cycle is ubiquitous phenomenon at high elevations and temperate zone. On North-hemisphere, 55% terrestrial area experienced seasonal freeze-thaw cycles.
