A THEORETICAL CONSIDERATION OF THE IMPLICATIONS OF CELL CLUSTERING FOR THE PREDICTION OF NITRIFICATION IN SOIL

Abstract:

The time course of nitrate production is different in different soils; in some soils, nitrate is produced at a constant rate while in others, this rate increases with time, often exponentially. Mechanistic models, based on the Monod equations, cannot account for a constant rate of nitrification. All such mechanistic models make the implicit assumption that the nitrifying organisms are distributed uniformly as single cells throughout the soil volume, while in reality, the cells might be expect...
