|Kögel-Knabner, I; Ekschmitt, K; Flessa, H; Guggenberger, G; Matzner, E; Marschner, B; von Lützow, M: An integrative approach of organic matter stabilization in temperate soils: Linking chemistry, physics and biology, Journal of Plant Nutr. Soil Sci., 171, 5-13 (2008), doi:10.1002/jpln.200700215|
With this topical issue, we present the work of the Priority Program 1090 of the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG): Soils as a source and sink for CO2 - mechanisms and regulation of organic matter stabilisation in soils. This introduction gives an overview on the sites investigated and the major research approaches, including a glossary of major terms used in the field of soil organic matter research. We point out the advantages of integration of data from a broad field of different soil-science disciplines and the progress achieved by application and combination of new analytical methods describing the quality and turnover of soil organic matter.
