Dynamics of soil microbial biomass as affected by floods in the humid tropics


Dynamics of soil microbial biomass as affected by floods in the humid tropics



Indian Journal of Soil Conservation 30(1): 21-28



ISSN/ISBN: 0970-3349

A study was carried out to determine the changes in physicochemical and biological properties of top soil collected from river bed, paddy field, and a forest after floods in the Dikrang river in Arunachal Pradesh, northeast India. The soil organic-C showed a sharp decline after flooding in the paddy fields compared to forest, whereas, river bank soils did not show any significant decline. The decline in total N was 36, 43 and 21% in paddy field, river bed and forest soils, respectively.
