Abstract

The effect of liming on microbial activity and N transformations was examined in four very acidic, organic topsoils to help explain reportsof poor growth of conifers on some such soils. Data were obtained from laboratory incubations and from a long-term field experiment. Limingto a pH near 6.5 caused soil respiration and microbial biomass to at least double in the first 4 d, mainly due to the proliferation of indigenous acid intolerant bacteria. Soil respiration then declined rapidly but microbial biomass less so, and in two soils, biomass remained significantly greater than the control beyond 101 d. Liming caused an initial increase in net N mineralization in all soils, but beyond 34 d, it became similar to or substantially less than the control. Nitrification in the limed soils increased rapidly at around 30 d. The greatestreduction in N mineralization occurred in two soils with the greatestC-to-N ratio. Immobilization of N in the microbial biomass could not account for the very small N mineralization rates observed in the longterm, but a relatively small increase in the N concentration of the stableresidual soil organic matter could. Small net N mineralization rates in limed organic soils with a large C-to-N ratio that could persist for more than 10 y may cause N stress in single species stands of trees on plantation forest, but it is unlikely to decrease the growth ofvegetation in species-rich communities.
