Urease activity has been reported for numerous forest soils (Wollum and Davey, 1975). The application of urea to forested ecosystems is receiving active research attention. , 1976). The rate of urea application utilized in these tests generally ranged from 113 to 555 kg ha- 1 (100-500 pounds acre-I). The quantity of ammonia lost by volatilization may be substantial and has been estimated to range from 18% to 75% of applied nitrogen (Yolk, 1959, 1970). Many of the studies supporting high percentage loss, however, have been performed in laboratory environments.
