Cover for Pasture establishment for extensive systems.

It is important to determine the effect of tree cover (shade) on pasture establishment and productivity in silvopastoral systems. An experiment was carried out in Galicia to evaluate the effect of spring and autumn sowing and shading (0 and 50% reduction of incident radiation) on pasture production ...

Cover for The herbaceous component in temperate silvopastoral systems.

The aim of this chapter is to evaluate herbaceous strata development in silvopastoral systems in a western temperate Atlantic-influenced area in Europe. This is a more modern and less well-known system than other classic Mediterranean silvopastoral systems. Pasture production and quality depend on...

Cover for Effect of fertilization, tree species, plantation density and sowing mixture on pasture production and soil characteristics in silvopastoral systems.

The aim of the experiment was to test the effect of three fertilizer treatments (no fertilizer, organic fertilizer and inorganic fertilizer) on cocksfoot pasture established under two tree species (Betula alba and Pinus radiata) at two densities (2500 and 833 trees/ha). After 7 years the effects of ...

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 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 Management and ecological implications of silvopastoral systems in the Alps.

In the Alps, 15% of the mountain forests are grazed, mainly by cattle browsing young trees, thus reducing the protection function of the forests against natural hazards. In this study, the condition of young trees on subalpine wood-pastures was assessed, the selection of herbaceous species was...

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 ...
