RACINE-C – Towards a better integration of root C in the management and the modelling of SOM dynamics

Programme: GESSOL
Research period: 2005-2008
Key question / Key goal: the project (1) quantified the flux, characterized and followed the evolution of the stock of root-derived soil carbon. The project also assessed the indirect effect of root-derived carbon on SOC mineralization and discussed its implication for SOM modelling and management..
Kind of study: Experimental study
Keywords: soil carbon, soil organic matter, plant roots, rhizodeposition, exudation, priming effect
