R.J. Dodd and A.N. Sharpley (University of Arkansas, USA) reviewed the impact of adopting conservation practices on the speciation and cycling of soil organic P in this interesting article published in Resources, Conservation and Recycling journal. The article discuss the … Continue reading
Klaus Jarosch and co-authors compared the 31P NMR spectroscopy and enzyme addition assays of soil NaOH-EDTA extracts in this remarkable research article published in Soil Biology & Biochemistry journal. The advantages and drawbacks in the quantification of different soil organic phosphorus … Continue reading
In this interesting paper published in Ecosystems, Benjamin Turner and Etienne Laliberté studied the pedogenesis processes occurring in a 2 Million year chronosequence of coastal dunes under Mediterranean climate in Southwestern Australia. This is an outstanding opportunity for a case study … Continue reading
In this interesting review published in Soil Biology and Biochemistry, Marianne Clarholm and coauthors describe the role of organic acids in the stepwise process of organic phosphorus mobilization, hydrolysis and uptake.
We are delighted to announce Organic Phosphorus Workshop (OP2016), following the successful meetings held in Panama-2013 and in Ascona-2003. All soil, water, plant and environmental scientists are welcome to exchange ideas and innovation on the subject of “Organic Phosphorus in the … Continue reading
Stutter and coauthors examined thirty-two temperate soils with a wide range or organic C concentrations for different P bioavailability indexes and the underlying biogeochemichal properties conditioning P speciation. 31P-NMR spectroscopy on NaOH–EDTA extracts is a central methodology in this outstanding work.
A new chromatographic method developed by Waithaisong et al. (2015) was shown to suitable for the quantification of organic P and LMWOAs in soil samples. This paper was sent to me as part of a personal e-mail response from Dr. Claude Plassard to … Continue reading
