Abstract:
Based on published data and experiments performed by the authors, the paper analyzes experimental methods for assessing the cellulosolytic activity of soils and calculating the measurement results thereof. A brief overview of factors and dynamics of this phenomenon, including its seasonal changes, is presented, as well as information on its geographic variability. These materials may be helpful in research on soil genesis and considering certain methodological aspects for reliable results and adequate interpretations.
