Soil organic carbon sequestration rates by tillage and crop rotation: A global data analysis
(Madison, WI: Soil Science Society of America, 2002)
This paper discusses a study attempting to quantify potential soil C sequestration rates for different crops in response to decreasing tillage intensity or enhancing rotation complexity, and to estimate the duration of ...
Soil fauna and soil function in the fabric of the food web
Through much research, the biological, biophysical, and biochemical interactions in soil are now understood much better. Tilling and fertilizing crop areas greatly affect decomposition and production processes, and hence ...
Between purity and reality: Taking stock of PES schemes in the Andes
This editorial by Sven Wunder, Senior Economist at the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in Belém, Brazil, describes findings from a survey of PES field initiatives in the Andes.
RUPES typology of environmental service worthy of reward
(Bogor, Indonesia: World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), 2005)
The development of transparent and sustainable reward mechanisms for environmental services provided by upland farmers to downstream communities requires clarity on the relationship between land use and the type of ...
Aggregate structure and carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus in native and cultivated soil
(Soil Science Society of America, 1986)
This study evaluates the impact of cultivation on soil organic matter loss in North American grassland soils by measuring numerous aggregate- and nutrient-related soil indicators. Macroaggregates were more stable in native ...
Bringing carbon back into nutrient management
This presentation discusses biochar as an example of the integration of household energy and soil improvement.
