Microaerobic Fe(II) oxidation could drive microbial carbon assimilation in paddy soil

Carbon assimilation process is important to maintain the production and ecological function of paddy field. The recent publication from Professor Fangbai LI’s group has found that microaerobic Fe(II) oxidation could drive microbial carbon assimilation in paddy soil that was developed from iron-rich red soil, which provides an insight into the ecological function of iron cycling in the critical zone of red soil.
