Alkalinity exacerbates phosphorus deficiency in subtropical red soils: Insights from phosphate-solubilizing fungi

Su, M., Mei, J., Mendes, G. de O., Tian, D., Zhou, L., Hu, S., & Li, Z. (2023, May 23). SOIL USE AND MANAGEMENT, Vol. 5.

author keywords: alkalinity; phosphate; Fe oxide; phosphate-solubilizing fungi; red soil
TL;DR: Alkaline red soils with abundant carbonates are susceptible to P deficiency due to both the diminished function of PSMs and strong soil buffering, which suggests that the use ofPSMs to improve P availability may be limited. (via Semantic Scholar)

Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Shift Community Composition of N-Cycling Microbes and Suppress Soil N2O Emission

Mycorrhizal Symbiotic Efficiency on C-3 and C-4 Plants under Salinity Stress - A Meta-Analysis

FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY, 7.

By: M. Chandrasekaran*, K. Kim*, R. Krishnamoorthy*, D. Walitang*, S. Sundaram*, M. Joe*, G. Selvakumar*, S. Hu n, S. Oh*, T. Sa*

author keywords: arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi; salinity stress; meta-analysis; C-3 and C-4 plants; nutrient uptake; plant biomass
TL;DR: It is concluded that AMF-inoculated C4 plants showed more competitive K+ ions uptake than C3 plants, therefore, maintenance of high cytosolic K+/Na+ ratio is a key feature of plant salt tolerance. (via Semantic Scholar)

Nitrogen:phosphorous supply ratio and allometry in five alpine plant species

Ecology and Evolution, 6(24), 8881–8892.

author keywords: above; and belowground biomass; allocation; allometry; N:P ratio; nutrient balance; P limitation; Tibetan Plateau
TL;DR: Plant biomass allocation is highly plastic in response to variation in the N:P supply ratio, and studies of resource allocation of individual plants should focus on the effects of nutrient ratios as well as the availability of individual elements. (via Semantic Scholar)

Optimizing rice plant photosynthate allocation reduces N2O emissions from paddy fields

SCIENTIFIC REPORTS, 6.

By: Y. Jiang*, X. Huang*, X. Zhang*, X. Zhang*, Y. Zhang*, C. Zheng*, A. Deng*, J. Zhang* ...

MeSH headings : Biomass; Carbon / metabolism; Edible Grain / genetics; Edible Grain / growth & development; Edible Grain / metabolism; Metabolic Engineering; Nitrogen / metabolism; Nitrous Oxide / metabolism; Oryza / genetics; Oryza / growth & development; Oryza / metabolism; Photosynthesis; Plants, Genetically Modified / genetics; Plants, Genetically Modified / growth & development; Plants, Genetically Modified / metabolism
TL;DR: It is demonstrated that optimizing photosynthate allocation to the grain can reduce paddy N2O emissions through decreasing belowground C input and increasing plant N uptake, suggesting the potential for genetic and agronomic efforts to produce more rice with less N 2O emissions.

Soil acidification exerts a greater control on soil respiration than soil nitrogen availability in grasslands subjected to long-term nitrogen enrichment

FUNCTIONAL ECOLOGY, 30(4), 658–669.

By: D. Chen n, J. Li*, Z. Lan*, S. Hu n & Y. Bai*

author keywords: base mineral cations; below-ground carbon allocation; microbial respiration; plant functional group; root nitrogen content; root respiration; root specific respiration; soil microbial community
TL;DR: The results indicate that soil acidification exerts a greater control than soil N availability on soil respiration in grasslands experiencing long-term N enrichment, and suggest that N-induced soil Acidification should be included in predicting terrestrial ecosystem C balance under future N deposition scenarios.

Winter legume cover-crop root decomposition and N release dynamics under disking and roller-crimping termination approaches

Renewable Agriculture and Food Systems, 31(3), 214–229.

By: A. Jani n, J. Grossman*, T. Smyth n & S. Hu n

author keywords: legume cover crops; roots; roller-crimping; disking; decomposition; soil nitrogen
TL;DR: It is indicated that under the warm, humid summer conditions of the Southeastern USA, legume cover-crop roots decompose and release N rapidly. (via Semantic Scholar)
