Abstract/Contents:"Mineralization of nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) were examined over a 31-week incubation period under aerobic conditions in 13 soils selected from the mountainous district of Pertouli, central Greece. The main native plant species are turf, forage crops, forest trees, herbs, and shrubs. Net mineralization and immobilization of N and S by indigenous plants were estimated. Most soils are acidic in this xeric, mesic climatic regime, and organic carbon (C), organic nitrogen (N), and sulfur (S) appreciably varied in soils and plant species. The cumulative net mineralization of N is much higher in comparison to the amount of mineralized S. Release of N is curvilinear with time and associated with a declining mineralization in the later stages of the incubation. Close relationships exist between soil organic S and N and between organic C and N, indicating that these elements are mainly bound in the organic matter. The cumulative net mineralization from soils varies greatly and ranges between 36.6 and 212.8 (average 104.8) mg/kg for N and between 21.4 and 45.2 (average 31.8) mg/kg for S. Immobilization occurs in most soils amended with indigenous plant residues, with the amount of immobilized N varying between 14.8 and 49.5 mg/kg and that of immobilized S ranging from 2.6 to 30.7 mg/kg. However, the estimated rates of N and S mineralization are not negligible and can be taken into account as potential sources in the management of the upland soils."
