Abstract

Sustainable oil palm waste management in engineering development.

Managing wastes from oil palm industry encompasses environmental impacts of the palm oil manufacturing process and waste water generated; which are mainly decanter cake, empty fruit bunches, seed shells and fibre from mesocrap. Hence there is an urgent need for a sustainable waste management system...

Abstract

Biological cycle of silicon in moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens) forests in central Japan.

Silicon (Si) has various biogeochemical functions, such as regulating soil formation and species composition, not only in terrestrial ecosystems but also in aquatic ones. Bamboo stands accumulate large quantities of amorphous Si. Evaluating Si dynamics in moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens)...

Abstract

Direct seeding of dry forest tree species in abandoned pastures: effects of grass canopy and seed burial on germination.

Natural tree regeneration in abandoned pastures can be hampered by various biotic and abiotic filters, including seed removal and predation. We tested the effects of maintenance and removal of grass and seed deposition (buried and unburied) on seed germination of 12 tree species in dry forest...

Abstract

Soil organic carbon stock and chemical composition along an altitude gradient in the Lushan Mountain, subtropical China.

Soil organic carbon (SOC) stock in mountain ecosystems is highly heterogeneous because of differences in soil, climate, and vegetation with elevation. Little is known about the spatial distribution and chemical composition of SOC along altitude gradients in subtropical mountain regions, and the...

Abstract

Soil acidification and adaptations of plants and microorganisms in Bornean tropical forests.

In tropical forest ecosystems, a paradoxical relationship is commonly observed between massive biomass production and low soil fertility (low pH). The loss and deficiency of soil phosphorus (P) and bases generally constrain biomass production; however, high productivity on nutrient-deficient soils...
