Conclusions

- Wide range of Net Isotope Effects associated with denitrification N2O production and reductionƞ15N: -43 - -18‰ƞ15N: -9 - -1‰δ18O: 10 - 40‰ƞ18O: -20 - -4‰ ƞSP: -10 - 1‰ ƞSP: -12 - -2‰
- The magnitude of isotope effects is controlled by several factorshigher NIEs when lower reactions rates, higher substrate availability, more efficient substrate transportation (e.g. lower soil moisture)
- Modelling aproach provides promising results for future development of a method to calculate reduction contribution based on isotopomers data
