Post fire litters are richer in water soluble carbon and lead to increased microbial activity

In this study, litters collected from two vegetation types (<i>Pinus</i> and <i>Eucalyptus</i> dominated) and from adjacent areas either fire affected (FA) or not fire affected (NFA) were incubated as litter, or as water extracts of litter, in soils to determine fire induced changes in nutrient pools, microbial biomass and microbial activity.
