Title: Oxidation-Reduction Potential of Saturated Forest Soils

Author: Bonner, F. T.; Ralston, C. W.;

Date: 1968

Source: Soil Science Society of America Proceedings. Madison, Wisconsin: USDA-Forest Service; 32(1):111-112

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

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.

Keywords: anaerobic, microorganisms
