Happy to announce the recent publication of:
Ohno T, KA Heckman, AF Plante, IJ Fernandez, TB Parr. 2017. 14C mean residence time and its relationship with thermal stability and molecular composition of soil organic matter: A case study of deciduous and coniferous forest types. Geoderma doi:10.1016/j.geoderma.2017.08.023 This collaborative project with Stom Ohno and colleagues from the University of Maine investigated the influence of forest type and soil depth on SOM stability, and found that the mean residence time of soil organic matter was greater for a deciduous forest soil compared with a coniferous forest soil, and speculated that extractable metal (oxy)hydroxide minerals were C-saturated in coniferous, but not deciduous soils.
