Abstract

Background and aims: Changes in net primary productivity in response to climate change are likely to affect litter inputs to forest soil. However, feedbacks between changes in litter input and soil carbon dynamics remain poorly understood in tropical and subtropical forests. This study aims to test ...

Abstract

Functional gene approaches have been used to better understand the roles of microbes in driving forest soil nitrogen (N) cycling rates and bioavailability. Ammonia oxidation is a rate limiting step in nitrification, and is a key area for understanding environmental constraints on N availability in...

Abstract

Carbon inventory was done on two savannah ecosystems (sites I & II) of Kanyakumari Wildlife Sanctuary, Western Ghats, India. Ten plots of 20 m × 20 m each were laid in each site to study woody vegetation and a total of forty quadrats (4 in each plot) of 1 m × 1 m were laid in each site for the...

Abstract

The evergreen forests of southwest Ethiopia are important for soil fertility sustenance and climate change mitigation. However, the increasing human population and expansion of agricultural land have led to deforestation. We determine the effect of deforestation on soil fertility, soil carbon and...

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...
