- ... PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the long-term effects of acid rain simulation (ARS) on soil respiration (Rₛ) components and enzymatic activities. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An 8-year field ARS experiment was conducted in a subtropical forest. A trenching method was used to partition Rₛ into heterotrophic respiration (Rₕ) and autotrophic respiration (Rₐ). Soil urease, invertase, a ...
