Abstract

Ethnopharmacological relevance: The genus Mitragyna (Rubiacaeae) has been traditionally used in parts of Africa, Asia and Oceania. In recent years, there has been increased interest in species of Mitragyna with the introduction of products to western markets and regulatory uncertainty. Aim of the...

Abstract

Management in fire-prone ecosystems relies widely upon application of prescribed fire and/or fire-surrogate (e.g., forest thinning) treatments to maintain biodiversity and ecosystem function. The literature suggests fire and mechanical treatments proved more variable in their effects on understory...

Abstract

Globally, biological invasions can have strong impacts on biodiversity as well as ecosystem functioning. While less conspicuous than introduced aboveground organisms, introduced belowground organisms may have similarly strong effects. Here, we synthesize for the first time the impacts of introduced ...

Abstract

Background: Property rights to natural resources comprise a major policy instrument in efforts to advance sustainable resource use and conservation. Debate over the relative effectiveness of different property rights regimes in reaching these goals remains controversial. A large, diverse, and...

Abstract

Background: Forests provide an essential resource that support the livelihoods of an estimated 20% of the global population. Forests are thought to serve in three primary roles to support livelihoods: subsistence, safety nets, and pathways to prosperity. While we have a working understanding of how ...

Abstract

Rhizosphere priming is crucial for regulating soil carbon and nitrogen biogeochemical cycles. An appreciable number of studies have been conducted to quantify the rhizosphere priming effect (RPE), and have shown that the RPE is sensitive to changes of plant and soil conditions. These diverse...

Abstract

Latitude, climate and vegetation type are key factors in the distribution of soil nematodes. The diversity of most aboveground organisms increases with decreasing latitude, but the macro-ecological diversity and geographic distribution patterns of belowground animals have been poorly studied. The...

Abstract

A meta-analysis approach was used to identify general tendency of alpine soil responses to nitrogen fertilizer on the Tibetan Plateau. Nitrogen addition increased ammonium nitrogen (NH4+) and nitrate nitrogen (NO3-), but decreased pH. Effects of nitrogen addition on soil organic carbon (SOC), total ...

Abstract

Forest management is widely considered to have an impact on the understorey plant diversity, which is essential for sustainable forestry and nature conservation. However, contradictions among previous large-scale studies and meta-analyses raised the need for better-designed research. Such research...

Abstract

Several organism communities serve as ecological and environmental indicators to detect changes in human-impacted habitats. However, the composition of indicator communities may vary because of natural variation in addition to the changes associated with human disturbances. This meta-analysis...
