Rövid leírás: 

Karst areas belong to the most exposed terrestrial ecosystems, therefore their
study have a priority task in Hungary, as well. The aim of this study was to compare the
structure, activity and diversity of soil microbial communities from two distinct Hungarian
karst areas (Aggtelek NP and Tapolca-basin). Soil samples were taken three
times from 6 distinct sites, from different depths. Soil microbial biomass C (MBC),
microbial biomass N (MBN), basal respiration (BRESP) and substrate induced respiration
(SIR) were measured. The phylogenetic diversity of bacterial communities was
compared by Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (DGGE). The highest MBC,
MBN, BRESP and SIR values were measured in the rendzina soil from Aggtelek. On
the basis of biomass and respiration measurements, microbial communities differentiated
mainly according to soil depths whereas DGGE profiles of bacterial communities
resulted in groups mainly according to sampling sites.
