Abstract: Natural aggregates 01' topsoil samples of six British soils (Handope, Ragdale, Evesham, Denchworth, Flint and Salop) were incubated with added nutrients and changes in their stability to wet sieving determined. Under anaerobic incubation the type of nutrient added had little effect on stability. Aerobic incubation with glucose gave a larger proportion of stable aggregates than with water. With peptone stability usually decreased, and occasionally increased, which may indicate differences in the binding mecha… Show more

“…This result is probably due to the differences in the nitrogen content between the plots . More nitrogen is expected to imply an enhanced ability of micro-organisms to decompose polysaccharides or other carbon-rich compounds (Skinner, 1979) that bind soil particles together, thus leading to lower aggregate stability. Briefly, micro-organisms are expected to decrease aggregate stability by degrading organics that bind particles all together and produce water repellent molecules, at the same time.…”
