Abstract: Stocks of Soil Organic Matter (SOM) are controlled by the balance between carbon inputs derived from plant production and outputs through decomposition processes mediated by heterotrophs. The importance and function of SOM is largely due to its dynamic nature, being continuously synthesised, mineralised and rearranged. Besides CO2 production, SOM decomposition provides metabolic energy for microorganisms and mineral nutrients available for plant uptake. Intensive agriculture stimulates
