The higher amino sugar concentrations may be attributed to a decreased mineralisation of hexosamines and muramic acid due to more recalcitrant litter and/or to increased contribution of microbial substances at the reforestation site as indicated by the presence of visible fungal hyphae, coupled with an increasing population of bacteria living upon the residues of fungi (Troeh and Thompson 1993).
Furthermore, the greater ratio of glucosamine to muramic acid in the virgin soil indicates that fungi were more abundant than bacteria (Amelung et al.
