10596. Wardle, D.A. and D. Parkinson. 1990. Influence of the herbicide glyphosate on soil microbial community structure.. Plant Soil 122:29--37.
Four rates of glyphosate were applied to soil at log increments and incubated for 27 days. Bacterial propagule numbers were temporarily enhanced by the two highest rates, while actinomycete and fungal propagule numbers were not changed. The frequency of three fungal species was temporarily enhanced by the highest rate, while one was inhibited. There was little agreement between species responses to glyphosate in incubated soil and in pure culture.
