In both instances, a change in temperature results in an exponential change in the reaction rate, the magnitude of which is a function of the activation energy. Note also that there is an inverse relationship between reaction rate and activation energy. The relationship between temperature and biologically mediated processes is complicated as individual species differ in their optimal temperature response, different microbial communities are active as temperatures change, and microorganisms are able to adapt by altering their physiology and cellular mechanisms, membrane fluidity and permeability, and structural flexibility of enzymes and proteins.

In situ at the level of the soil microhabitat. It is common practice for soil scientists, after collecting samples in the field from a soil profile, to pass the soil through a 2-mm sieve to remove the plant debris and macrofauna and then homogenize the samples before analysis. B Pore Space On a volume basis, mineral soils are about 35-55% pore space, whereas organic soils are 80-90% pore space. Total soil pore space can vary widely for a variety of reasons, including soil mineralogy, bulk density, organic matter content, and disturbance.

Although bacteria and archaea may resemble each other in their microscopic size, in many other ways they are as different from each other as they are from eukaryotes. Despite the apparent relative simplicity of prokaryotes as a group, they have substantially greater phylogenetic and functional diversity than eukaryotes and possess the most efficient dispersal and survival mechanisms of all organisms. They also vastly outnumber eukaryotes. Global organic C in prokaryotes is equivalent to that in plants; soil bacteria and archaea contain 10-fold more N.
