Calibration of a new method to determine microbial biomass in soil samples using substrate induced respiration (SIR)


Verband Deutscher Landwirtschaftlicher Untersuchungs und Forschungsanstalten, Reihe Kongressberichte ( 32): 701-706
Calibration of a new method to determine microbial biomass in soil samples using substrate induced respiration (SIR)
A new automated method for SIR was developed (Heinemeyer et al. 1989) which, in contrast to the conventional method uses an infrared gas analyser to determine CO2, and atmospheric air continuously flows through the sample. The rate of air through flow is variable, and the air is also analysed.
