A plethora of methods have been developed over the few last decades to enable a better understanding of the ecology of soil microbial communities and their roles in soil functioning. However, there is generally considerable variation both subtle and more extensive in the actual realisation of these methods, and limited efforts have been devoted to their standardisation, despite this being crucial to underpin data comparison and integration.

Effects of soil management systems on soil microbial activity, bulk density and chemical properties 1. The no-tillage system also provided an improvement in bulk density and chemical properties of the soil. Hence, the no-tillage management system could be an alternative for the conservation and maintenance of physical and chemical conditions and the productive potential of "cerrado" soils. Index terms: soil chemicophysical properties, biomass, soil deterioration, soil conservation. Introduction "Cerrado" vegetation fits into the category of the savanna formation. After the 's, an extensive occupation process started on several areas of Brazilian "cerrado" which involved intensive agricultural, pasture and reforestation activities. The continuous growth of an only crop may cause serious changes in the natural ecosystem equilibrium.
Soil microbiology is the study of microorganisms in soil , their functions, and how they affect soil properties. It is believed that between two and four billion years ago, the first ancient bacteria and microorganisms came about on Earth's oceans. These bacteria could fix nitrogen , in time multiplied , and as a result released oxygen into the atmosphere. Soil microorganisms can be classified as bacteria , actinomycetes , fungi , algae and protozoa. Each of these groups has characteristics that define them and their functions in soil.

Soil biological properties and fungal diversity under conservation agriculture in Indo-Gangetic Plains of India. A field experiment was undertaken to evaluate the effect of conservation agriculture CA based management on soil biological properties, and on fungal diversity and abundance after 5 years of continuous cultivation. Treatments included four crop managements viz. Full rice, maize, and mungbean crop residue and anchored wheat residue were recycled in CA-based managements, while CT-based management was without any residue. This study clearly showed that CA with all three proven principles no-tillage, residue retention and crop diversification in maize-wheat-mungbean system resulted in higher microbial activities, fungal diversity and species richness compared to other cereal based management systems. Furthermore, this risk is intensified with in-situ burning of crop residues which hampered the soil biological activities and microbial diversity Lohan et al.
The objective of this study was to determine the influence of increasing doses of agricultural gypsum on the quality of the soil biochemical attributes in coffee cultivation Coffea arabica L. Soil samples were collected in two collections dry and rainy season , at 0 — 10 cm depth of a Oxisol, submitted to doses 0 GSA ; 3. TOC showed no differences between treatments. The enzymatic activities of Phosphatase and the FDA showed no differences between treatments. On the other hand, the specific enzymatic activities by MBC were to describe the differences between the doses of gypsum applied, generally with greater activity in treatments G7. The accumulated coffee productivity was higher in G14 treatment. The results presented to confirm that the biochemical attributes of the soil are sensitive in the evaluation of changes in soil use and that the increase in gypsum does favor activity and microbial biomass.
Rising global temperatures may increase the rates of soil organic matter decomposition by heterotrophic microorganisms, potentially accelerating climate change further by releasing additional carbon dioxide CO 2 to the atmosphere. However, the possibility that microbial community responses to prolonged warming may modify the temperature sensitivity of soil respiration creates large uncertainty in the strength of this positive feedback. Both compensatory responses decreasing temperature sensitivity of soil respiration in the long-term and enhancing responses increasing temperature sensitivity have been reported, but the mechanisms underlying these responses are poorly understood.

Я тебе очень благодарен. - Не стоит благодарности. - Она улыбнулась и села напротив шефа. Стратмор был крупным кряжистым мужчиной, чье невыразительное лицо скрывало присущие ему решительность, настойчивость и неизменное стремление к совершенству. Серые глаза светились уверенностью, с которой сочеталась профессиональная скрытность, но сегодня в них проглядывали беспокойство и нерешительность. - У вас испуганный вид, - сказала Сьюзан. - Настали не лучшие времена, - вздохнул Стратмор.
Она повернулась к монитору и показала на работающего Следопыта. - Я никуда не спешу. Стратмор сокрушенно вздохнул и начал мерить шагами комнату. - Очевидно, когда Танкадо умер, рядом находились свидетели. Согласно словам офицера, который отвел Дэвида в морг, некий канадский турист сегодня утром в панике позвонил в полицию и сказал, что у одного японца в парке случился сердечный приступ. Прибыв на место, офицер увидел мертвого Танкадо, рядом с которым находился упомянутый канадец, и тут же по рации вызвал скорую.
