Short summary
Previous studies have shown that differences in soil carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity are found in different biomes and seasons, but our understanding of the drivers responsible for those patterns is still limited. We artificially increased the soil CA concentration to test how soil pH affected the relationship between soil CA activity and concentration. We found that soil pH was the primary driver of soil CA activity.
