    Report on Soil Respiration rates (lab 4)

     

     

    What to write

     

    Standard (as taught in 1st year Biol Systs) full lab report. i.e.

    Title

    Abstract

    Introduction

    Methods (Write methods in full using standard format)

    Results

    Discussion

    References

     

    Important aspects to for introduction and/or discussion

     

    Composition of soil organic matter (OM), types of OM in soil, lability/recalcitrance of OM etc. i.e. how it influences respiration rates

     

    Role of water in regulating microbial metabolism in soils. i.e. how it influences soil respiration rates.

     

    Effects of the soil treatments (What has the greater influence water or labile OM & how do these interact)

     

    Why soil respiration rates are important/why do people measure them

     

    Methods for measuring respiration rates/metabolic activity in soils

     

    Comparison of the two methods you used:-

     

    Both measure “total metabolism” but in different ways. So don’t (or don’t always) measure the same thing.

    These inherent limitations of the methods (especially if you think they effected your results) and how the different treatments would effect these.

     

    These points are highly dependent on your results and we will be discussing these in class to give some idea on how to consider your actual results in relation to these.

     

    We will discuss these comparisons/methods biases and go through how to calculate the results from each experiment in the workshop.
