Cover for Establishment of a bovine/<i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Quercus</i> silvopastoral experiment in lowland Ireland.

A silvopastoral experiment was established at Teagasc in County Wexford, Ireland, in 2002 with oak (Quercus robur L.) in an alley design and bovines. The experiment includes some treatments with trees produced with an enhanced root system (RPM). The treatments are: (1) control pasture plots; (2)...

Cover for Light availability for understorey pasture in holm-oak dehesas.

The percentage of radiation transmitted through the tree layer to the understorey pasture in dehesas of west-central Spain has been modelled. To achieve that, different allometric relationships between tree ages and stem diameter (DBH), and between stem diameter and canopy size (tree height, canopy ...

Cover for Rangeland health assessment in silvopastoral systems of northern Greece.

Silvopastoral areas in Greece dominated by deciduous oaks are mainly utilized by domestic animals but irrational grazing results in their degradation. The aim of this study was to identify which are the most important indicators for assessing rangeland health. In Lagadas county, northern Greece, 17 ...

Cover for The effect of pruning intensity on acorn production in a holm-oak "dehesa".

In this work the effect of the type of pruning on acorn production in a dehesa of Huelva province (south-west Spain) is evaluated. A plot including 100 holm-oaks (Quercus ilex L.) is replanted, and different pruning treatments are carried out (light, moderate, strong and hedge shaped), and there...

Cover for Pruning influence on acorn yield in cork-oak open woodland.

Bearing in mind the importance of pruning as a silvicultural treatment in cork-oak (Quercus suber L.) open woodland, an experiment was designed to assess the effect of pruning on acorn yield. This work was carried out by comparing annual acorn production from 40 pruned trees and 40 unpruned ones...

Cover for Types of land use in the montado (dehesa) production system.

This study was based on data obtained from the General Census of Agriculture (RGA, 1999) regarding 932 farms from the Alentejo region (Portugal). Farms were classified by percentage of "montado" according to the land used for agricultural purposes (LUAP) ("montado" classes (MC): MCa 0-33%; MCb...

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 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 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 ...
