  The researchers studied soil carbon accumulation and soil microbial biomass under forest and arable land use types in soils of dissimilar lithology origin in Southeastern Nigeria. Soil samples were randomly collected from each land use type among the soil groups. Soil cores were collected for bulk density determination while moist soil samples were used for the estimation of soil microbial biomass. Standard techniques were used in the laboratory analysis of selected parameters. Soil data were statistically analyzed using standard deviation, coeffient of variation and one way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Least significant difference at 5% probability was used to identify significance among means. Means values of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) were highest in soils under forest land use. About 59.3-70.2 ton ha-1 bit when compared with values from arable land use (39.3-46.8 ton ha-1). Stock of soil differed among parent materials. There were significant (p≤0.05) differences in Soil Microbial Biomass Carbon (SMBC) and Soil Microbial Biomass Nitrogen (SMBC) among land use types and soil groups.

  Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring phytochemicals found in plants and plant products, which are structurally and functionally similar to human or animal estrogens (17β-oestradiol) or synthetic estrogens such as diethylstilboestrol. The principal phytoestrogens are the isoflavones, which are similar to 17β-oestradiol and then the lignans derived from precursors in the diet by the gut microflora. Isoflavones are members of the flavonoid family, which are in turn members of the larger group of plant constituents known as polyphenols. The principle isoflavones in soy are genistein, daidzein and their metabolites. Since, soy isoflavone are naturally occurring non-steroidal compounds, which are structurally similar to endogenous gonadal steroid 17β-estradiol, they possess the ability to cause estrogenic or/ and antiestrogenic effects and therefore could trigger estrogen dependent physiological responses. As result of these actions, there is currently much interest within the scientific community regarding clinical benefits of soy based isoflavone.
