Soil aggregation, distribution patterns of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and ammonia oxidizing archaea (AOA) associated with different sizes of aggregates, and nitrification were studied for sites, located in Cixi, Zhejiang Province, under a 300 and 2000 year duration of rice cultivation (P300 and P2000). Long-term rice cultivation improved large macroaggregate formation from silt + clay fractions. The highest net nitrification occurred for macroaggregates and the least for large macroaggregates, which coincided with nitrifier populations. A long duration of intensive rice cultivation history depressed nitrifier populations and nitrification rates at both whole soil scale and aggregate scale
