Relationship between nitrifier and denitrifier community composition and abundance in predicting nitrous oxide emissions from ephemeral wetland soils.
These organisms would extract H2S or CH4 from reducing sediments, cultivating endosymbiotic chemotrophic or denitrifier bacteria by accumulation and storage of fecal pellets for later reutilization as an energy source (a possible explanation for the observed textural and color contrast between the Chondrites fill and lighter sedimentary surroundings).
We tested the hypothesis that soil microbial diversity affects ecosystem function by evaluating the effect of denitrifier community composition on nitrous oxide ([N.
Changes in denitrifier abundance, denitrification gene mRNA levels, nitrous oxide emissions, and denitrification in anoxic soil microcosms amended with glucose and plant residues.
