Soil nitrate reducing processes – drivers, mechanisms for spatial variation, and significance for nitrous oxide production

Article English OPEN
Giles, M.; Morley, N.; Baggs, E.M.; Daniell, T.J.;

The microbial processes of denitrification and dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium\ud (DNRA) are two important nitrate reducing mechanisms in soil, which are responsible for\ud the loss of nitrate (NO−\ud 3 ) and production of the potent greenhouse gas, nitrous ... View more
