Abstract

Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) deposition caused by human activities imposes a serious impact on soils. Exogenous N can directly increase the contents of total N and available N in soils, improve soil P availability, and reduce the total P content; exogenous P will increase N absorption of trees...

Abstract

Climate change and carbon mitigation through forest ecosystems are some of the important topics in global perspective. Tropical dry forests are one of the most widely distributed ecosystems in tropics, which remain neglected in research. The soil organic carbon (SOC) stock was quantified on a large ...

Abstract

The massive forests of central Amazonia are often considered relatively resilient against climatic variation, but this view is challenged by the wildfires invoked by recent droughts. The impact of such fires that spread from pervasive sources of ignition may reveal where forests are less likely to...

Abstract

Anthropogenic forest disturbance and land use change (LUC) in the Amazon region is the main source of greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere in Brazil, due to the carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) emitted from vegetation clearance. Land use conversion associated with management practices plays a key...

Abstract

Tropical forests play an important role in regulating the global climate and the carbon cycle. With the changing temperature and moisture along the elevation gradient, the Luquillo Experimental Forest in Northeastern Puerto Rico provides a natural approach to understand tropical forest ecosystems...

Abstract

This study aims to show preliminary results of meteorology and surface energy transfers in tropical forests and agroecosystems and their associations with vegetation canopy and soil water content. Field observations were conducted at the selected vegetation sites and adjacent sparse vegetation...

Abstract

Introduction: Soil heterotrophic respiration (Rh, an indicator of soil organic carbon decomposition) is an important carbon efflux of terrestrial ecosystems. However, the dynamics of soil Rh and its empirical relations with climatic factors have not been well understood. Methods: We incubated soils ...

Abstract

This study analyzes plant biomass, and carbon sequestration in the soil-plant system of the tropical dry deciduous forest ecosystems. The study was carried out in three protected forests in the tropical dry deciduous forest region in Gurgaon district (270 27′ to 280 32′ N; 760 39′ to 770 32′ E; 186 ...

Abstract

Carbon stocks are a major topic in discussions on climate change and are valued as reserved cash by various nations. Carbon stock in tropical ecosystems is greater than in other ecosystems. Shorea robusta Garten. is one of the major forest components of the tropical ecosystems in Nepal where...

Abstract

Degradation, a reduction of the ecosystem's capacity to supply goods and services, is widespread in tropical forests and mainly caused by human disturbance. To maintain the full range of forest ecosystem services and support the development of effective conservation policies, we must understand the ...
