Root influence on soil nitrogen availability and microbial community dynamics results in contrasting rhizosphere priming effects in pine and spruce soil

Jian Li, Saeed Alaei, Moyan Zhou & Per Bengtson
1. The rhizosphere priming effect (RPE) is increasingly considered an important regulator of belowground C and N cycling, with implications for terrestrial ecosystem feedback to global change. Even so there is a lack of knowledge about the mechanisms underlying RPEs. 2. We used novel stable isotope probing methods to investigate RPEs in an experiment with Scots pine and Norway spruce seedlings, two of the most common boreal forest species. We determined root exudation rates, RPEs...
