Soils are capable to consume N 2 O. It is generally assumed that consumption occurs exclusively via respiratory reduction to N 2 by denitrifying organisms (i.e. complete denitrification). Yet, we are not aware of any verification of this assumption. Some N 2 O may be assimilatorily reduced to NH 3 . Reduction of N 2 O to NH 3 is thermodynamically advantageous compared to the reduction of N 2 . Is this an ecologically relevant process? To find out, we treated four contrasting soil samples in adoi:10.5451/unibas-ep9409 fatcat:iwtv52xiyjfalmaijsnjbtcspm
