Cover for Evaluation of the production of acorns of the oak (<i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Quercus ilex</i> Lam. ssp. <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">ballota</i>) from south-west of Extremadura (Spain).

Over 2 years (1997-98 and 1998-99) the total production and seasonal distribution of the holm-oak acorn in the montanera (October-January) was measured in five dehesas in the south-west of Extremadura (Spain). The average total production of the five dehesas varied between 600 and 830 kg of...

Cover for Biodiversity and dynamics of traditional silvopastoral systems in Galicia (north-west Spain): <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Cytisus</i> scrubs.

In inland Galicia, north-west Spain broom scrubs ("xesteiras") dominated by Cytisus striatus or C. multiflorus often form part of traditional silvopastoral systems, with non-woody components providing grazing and forage, and woody components providing firewood and bedding. In some cases the...

Cover for Root density and soil water relationships of a silvopastoral system of the tropical region of Yucatan, Mexico.

In the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, cattle production is limited by forage availability during the dry season since water and soil fertility are the main factors limiting production. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of Leucaena leucocephala grown at 5000 trees/ha on forage...

Cover for Cover crops effects on plant and insect biodiversity in Western Australian vineyards.

The clearing of large Eucalyptus forests in Mediterranean Australia caused negative effects on hydrological balance. The reintroduction of trees and shrubs and the use of perennial herbaceous species in association with woody plants are considered necessary to limit further damages to natural and...

Cover for Consequences of dehesa management on tree-understorey interactions.

The distribution of resources (light, microclimate, soil moisture and soil nutrients) and fine roots (herbaceous plants and trees) around trees were studied in four dehesas with three types of management: cropped (forage), grazed (native grasses) and encroached (matorral). Additionally, the forage...

Cover for Silvopasture as an approach to reducing nutrient loading of surface water from farms.

Nitrogen and P concentrations within soil profiles are being monitored in three pastures at Ona, Florida (27°23′N, 81°57′W). Two of the pastures - a treeless pasture and a pasture with slash pine (Pinus elliottii) (silvopasture) - consist of bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum) with legumes Desmodium...

Cover for Some ecological impacts of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Quercus rotundifolia</i> trees on the understorey environment in the "montado" agrosilvopastoral system, southern Portugal.

The influence of Quercus rotundifolia trees on precipitation chemistry, soil physical and chemical characteristics, light, nutrient and water availability and biomass production of the understorey was studied in a "montado" at Évora (southern Portugal). Ca and K were added to the soil by...

Cover for Soil nutrient status and forage yield at varying distances from trees in four dehesas in Extremadura, Spain.

The aim of this study was to understand the effect of holm-oak (Quercus ilex) on the soil nutrient concentration and its consequence for the yield of understorey forage (Avena sativa) in four dehesas of CW Spain. The soils of the dehesas varied in soil fertility (chromic Luvisols and Achrisols, and ...

Cover for Post-fire ecological and dynamic characterization of shrubland communities in Galicia using structural variables.

Two Galician moorland communities, one dominated by Pterospartum tridentatum and Erica umbellata and the other by Cytisus striatus, were ecologically characterized, and their recovery after a traditional use of fire to obtain pasture for grazing was evaluated. The study was carried out in A Serra...

Cover for Historical effects of grazing on tree establishment in the Cantabrian lowlands, northern Spain: a dendroecological analysis in two old-growth forests.

Tree regeneration patterns were reconstructed in two old-growth deciduous forests in the Cantabrian lowlands, northern Spain: the Caviedes forest and the Tragamón woodlands. Caviedes is dominated by beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) and pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.), while Tragamón is constituted by...
