Legume and gramineous crop residues stimulate distinct soil bacterial populations during early decomposition stages

M. Diouf, E. Baudoin, L. Dieng, K. Assigbetse and A. Brauman    

Abstract: This study characterized the genetic structure of the active soil bacterial populations involved in the decomposition of maize and soybean residues over 3 d. Significant compositional differences between the total bacterial community and its active component were observed that were residue specific, suggesting that residue management should be further evaluated as a driver of soil C cycle through selection of bacterial populations.
