Table of Contents

Introduction. Mass Spectrometry. Optical Emmission Spectrometry. Natural Abundance of 15N: Fractional Contribution of Two Sources to a Common Sink an Use of Isotope Discrimination. Nitrogen Fixation in Soil and Plant Systems. Nitrogen Fixation in Flooded Rice Soils, Aquatic and Sediment Systems. Nitrification and Dentrification. Mineralization and Assimilation in Soil and Plant Systems. Mineralization and Assimilation in Aquatic, Sediment, And Wet Land Systems. 13N Techniques. Chapter References. Index.


Description

This book is the first laboratory manual to bring together basic procedures for measurement of stable and radioactive isotopes of nitrogen, with specific applications to plant, soil, and aquatic biology. This bench-top reference gives practical coverage of mass and emission spectrometry, nitrogen fixation, nitrification, and identification, organic nitrogen, and the radioactive isotope 13N. Methods are described so that researchers can adapt them, without the aid of outside references, to virtually any task they may encounter in investigations of nitrogen transformation processes.

Key Features

  • Serves as a practical guide for nitrogen isotope techniques
  • Features studies of nitrogen transformations in terrestrial and aquatic systems
  • Includes basic measurement techniques plus specific applications for stable and radioactive nitrogen isotopes
  • Presents detailed protocols, overviews, and key references
  • Includes fifty figures and sixteen tables
  • Hands-on reference for both students and researchers

Readership
