Carbon and nitrogen inputs differentially affect priming of soil organic matter in tropical lowland and montane soils

Hicks, Lettice C.; Meir, Patrick; Nottingham, Andrew T.; Reay, Dave S.; Stott, Andrew W; Salinas, Norma; Whitaker, Jeanette


Microbial decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) can be accelerated or reduced by the combined effects of carbon (C) and nutrient inputs through a phenomenon known as ‘priming’. Tropical lowland and montane soils contain large stores of C and may undergo substantial future changes in C and nutrient inputs due to global change, yet how these inputs might interact to influence priming is poorly understood in these ecosystems. We addressed this question using soils from a 3400 m tropical...[Show more]
