This diploma thesis is entitled "Nitration in greenhouse soils" and aims to present in detail the reactions related to the biogeochemical cycle of nitrogen in these soils, focusing on the contribution of the Archaea to greenhouse soils. First, a literature review is made regarding the transformation of nitrogen with emphasis on nitrification, the contribution of the Archaea as well as the bacteria involved in nitrification and the agronomic techniques that inhibit the action of nitrifying bacteria. Then follows the experimental part of the work with measurements of nitrate and ammonium in greenhouse soils which are discriminated according to their treatment or not with the inhibitor as well as their incubation at different temperatures and the results through the analysis of the diagrams of average concentrations.
