AbstractFull Text

Orthosiphon stamineus (Benth) is a herb that can be intercropped under shade trees. There is a lack of information the soil properties for O. stamineus intercropped with durian. In this study, the soil was tested to determine nutrient levels with respect to the organic fertilizer treatments such as ...

AbstractFull Text

We compared N2O emissions at various-aged acacia plantation forests for 1 year in Sumatra, Indonesia. Three areas were prepared for this experiment, in each of which three acacia forests (1, 3, and 5 year-old, respectively) and one secondary forest were selected. The N2O emission was high from...

AbstractFull Text

Bio-solids waste from pulp and paper mill industries have been linked to containing various metals as contaminants from the chemicals added during the pulping process. Metal pollution of soils is of great environmental concern especially when using paper mill sludge (pms) for land application. The...

AbstractFull Text

Planting forests onto marginal ex-agricultural land may provide a relatively cost-effective way of creating a carbon sink where more CO2 is being removed from the atmosphere than is being released (sequestration), while simultaneously improving soil organic carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) stocks...

AbstractFull Text

The potential impact of agroforestry systems on C sequestration is widely recognized. However limited data is available on its impact on C dynamics, as much of the previous research has been focused on agricultural productivity. This research was therefore conducted to determine biomass carbon and...

AbstractFull Text

Studies were carried out on the components of ecosystems in the region of the north-eastern parts of Lyulin Mountain in the green zone of Sofia-Pernik agglomeration (Bulgaria). Three plots in the most visited areas were investigated. Soil morphology, mechanical composition, water regime, humus...

AbstractFull Text

By using regular grid and transect methods, plot and sub-plots were established in the forest gap of Pinus koraiensis-dominated broadleaved mixed forests in Xiao Xing'an Mountains, China. The surfacial, maximum and minimum temperature(Ts, Tmax, and Tmin), and the temperature at 5, 10, 15, and 20 cm ...

AbstractFull Text

This study was developed in order to obtain an equation for yield prediction as a function of soil properties, for plantations established with Pinus taeda L. in the plateau located in the northern part of the State of Santa Catarina, Brazil. As a case study, one of the farms of Battistella...

AbstractFull Text

Soil respiration is an important component process of carbon cycle in terrestrial ecosystems. The forested area of the continuous permafrost zone of Central and Northeastern Siberia exceeds that of boreal forests in other regions of the world. However, soil respiration has rarely been studied in...
