Abstract Soil organic matter (SOM) is essential for soil fertility and ecosystem services. Recent results show that easily degradable plant material is degraded by microbes with conversion to CO2 and microbial biomass. Turnover studies with 13C-labelled microbial biomass in soils showed that around 50 percent of the bulk carbon of microbial biomass is stabilized in SOM. Instead of modified plant material microbial necromass after cell death is thus a major constituent of SOM. This has an important impact on the understanding of global soil processes.
