Correction to: Biology and Fertility of Soils

The author regret that a typographical error was present in the Fig. 2 of the published original version of this article; the text “Natual” in the image should have been “Natural”. The correct Fig. 2 is as follows:
Fig. 2

Priming effects after addition of 13C labeled Chinese fir litter during a 195-day incubation period in two subtropical forest soils, explained by the main mechanism of microbial substrate adaptation. The priming dynamics were estimated by two models (growth and peak functions) for the natural and plantation forests, respectively. The peak function for plantation forest that represents the shifts of priming effect from negative to positive. There are two stages, i.e., microbial substrate adaptation (initial stage) and rapid priming of SOM decomposition (later stage). Results are means ± standard errors (n = 4). NS non-significant difference. * p < 0.05; ** p < 0.01; *** p < 0.001
