Estimation of the biological activity in marshes and peats based on carbon and organic nitrogen mineralization

Roczniki Gleboznawcze 46(3/4): 19-28

Estimation of the biological activity in marshes and peats based on carbon and organic nitrogen mineralization

Results from laboratory experiments showed that mineralization of organic C was strong in moderately decomposed peat and weak to medium in marsh soils. Mineralization of organic N followed a similar pattern.
