Data collected after 7 days of incubation were used to examine the effect of temperature on net ammonification, nitrification and N mineralisation rates for each forest ecosystem.
Thus, after 1 day of incubation with urea the ammonification process had occurred.
Under the alternation of anoxic/anaerobic conditions, the nitrogen cycle of wetland ecosystems catalysed by microorganisms includes di-nitrogen fixation, nitrification, denitrification, ammonification, anaerobic ammonium oxidising (anammox), and dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium (Purvaja et al.
Generally, liming acid soils stimulates nitrification, often to a greater extent than ammonification alone (Chase et al.
4]-N, as this process is known to be more sensitive to moisture deficit than ammonification (Stark and Firestone 1995).

Not only can high ESP deteriorate soil chemicophysical properties, it can also suppress microbial activity (enzyme activity, carbon mineralisation, ammonification, nitrification, etc.
Enzyme assays may also be useful as indicators of potential N supply, as has been demonstrated for arginine ammonification (Bonde et al.
Several biochemical pathways of soil N transformation, including ammonification, nitrification, denitrification, and ammonia volatilisation, discriminate against [sup.
These will include an increase in pH due to ammonification of manure-organic N without concomitant nitrification and decarboxylation of organic acid anions with the release of O[H.
If increased water movement was associated with lowering the soil redox potential, nitrate ammonification (the direct reduction of nitrate to ammonium) could have been triggered in the subsoil, and the ammonium produced allowed to accumulate due to the absence of deep nutrient extraction.
