2000). Nitrogen mineralization potential and urease activity were measured according to Kandeler (1996a,b). , 2000). From SIR-data the microbial quotient as well as the metabolic quotient were calculated according to Insam (1996). Nitrate translocation into deeper soil horizons was measured by applying a soil core-IER method (Binkley and Hart 1989). Resin bags containing ion exchange resins (IER, 4 mg Dowex 1X8 pract. 5 cm depth, 9 cm diameter) which were taken from each sampling point. The resin bags and the soil cores were enclosed in close-fitting PVC tubes and returned to the same holes from which the cores had been taken.
