Cover for Tree growth and pasture production under sewage sludge fertilization.

The objective of these experiments was to compare the effect on pasture production and tree growth in a silvopastoral system of no fertilization, three doses of sewage sludge, with or without liming, and the fertilization usually used in the region. The experiment was conducted over 3 years in the...

Cover for Application of limed sewage sludge to a young <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Pinus radiata</i> plantation on acid soil.

In this study the effectiveness of addition of sewage sludge (alkaline, rich in N, P and Ca, and with low levels of heavy metals) originating from a dairy industry to fertilize a silvopastoral system, established on a 10-year-old Pinus radiata plantation, was assessed. The experiment consisted of...

Cover for Effect of different tree and shrub densities on the form, agronomic performance and quality of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Panicum maximum</i> in the Chaqueño Mountains, Bolivia.

The effect of tree and shrub densities on the form, agronomic performance and quality of Panicum maximum cv Gatton Panic during its establishment was studied in an experiment with a random block design and four replicates. The treatments consisted of 40%, 60% and 100% of natural communities, with a ...

Cover for Spatial dependence and seasonal patterns of cattle activity.

Cattle activity or grazing sensu lato can be subdivided into three components: dung deposition, herbage removal (foraging or grazing sensu stricto) and trampling. All these actions modify vegetation. Our purpose was to observe the medium-scale distributions of dung-pat density, trampling effect and ...

Cover for Floristic stability of pastures in the Sierra Mágina nature reserve, Andalusia, Spain.

In this research project, a new faster and more efficient method of assessing the biodiversity and the conservation value of pastures was derived. The methodology proposed is based on the phytosociological method. Taking the Shannon-Weaver index as a starting point, a new phytocoenotic stability...

Cover for Effects of breed and stocking rate on vegetation dynamics and biodiversity in heath-gorse communities grazed by goats.

The objective of this work is to study the changes in plant and animal biodiversity of heathlands under goats' grazing in a Cantabrian range. Three treatments (in three replicates) were established: low (LC) and high stocking rate with Cashmere goats (HC), and high stocking rate with local goats...

Cover for Live weight changes of sheep and goats grazing a burned heath-gorse vegetation community.

Sheep and goat performance was studied on previously burned heathlands. Initially sheep and goats were allocated individually to two replicated plots, and managed during two consecutive grazing seasons (autumn 2001 and spring-autumn 2002) at 10 animals/ha. For the third grazing season (2003) each...
