Below-ground organic carbon and decomposition potential in a field-forest glacial-outwash landscape


, : Below-ground organic carbon and decomposition potential in a field-forest glacial-outwash landscape. Biology and Fertility of Soils 23(2): 207-214

Variations in the relationships of soil properties to land use and topography exists due to differences in other factors. These were investigated by studying the relationship of below-ground C (as soil organic C + fine-root C) and decomposition potential to site characteristics at Cedar Creek Natural History Area in east-central Minnesota, USA.
