Description: Large decreases in redox potentials of saturated soil over a 25-day incubation period were favored by high temperature and the addition of sucrose, loblolly pine needles (Pinus taeda L. ), or yellow-poplar leaves (Liriodendron tulipifera L.). The addition of a complete nutrient solution had no effect in soils incubated with sucrose, but it reduced the drop in potential in soils incubated with tree litter at 21-27C. The data suggest the need for care when evaluating soil aeration by means of redox potentials and the dominant role of soil microorganisms in activating redox systems.
