  • The variability of atmospheric deposition to forests. The effects of canopy structure and forest adges
  • Atmospheric pollution ; Environment ; Forest ; Netherlands (The) ; Pollution
  • The impact of forest canopy structure on deposition amounts was studied by extensive throughfall monitoring in thirty different forest stands in the Netherlands. It is concluded that emission reductions on a regional and (inter)national scale level

  • Tropical rain forests
  • Bibliography ; Biogeography ; Biological indicator ; Deforestation ; Ecosystem ; Environment ; Forest ; Tropical rain forest ; Vegetation dynamics
  • The A. briefly reviews major themes in published tropical forest research between 1991 and 1992 inclusive in an attempt to identify what questions are believed to be important.

  • Fir tree ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Nepal ; Resource management
  • Internal dynamics of the fir forest make a steady flow of Abies spectabilis timber in Nepalese village forests impossible to sustain. Management practices exacerbate the problem. Alternative management options are presented.―(DWG)

  • Structure and composition of a riparian forest edge
  • Biogeography ; Ecology ; Floodplain ; Forest ; Iowa ; Meander ; United States ; Vegetation ; Vegetation dynamics
  • To examine specific changes in vegetation initiated by the lateral migration of a river channel, the AA. quantify the structures and composition of woody trees and shrubs along a cutbank forest edge in an Iowa floodplain.

  • Properties, dynamics and association of soils on high elevations of the Bavarian Forest (Germany) as illustrated by a toposequence on gneiss debris
  • Bavaria ; Forest ; Germany ; Human impact ; Soil catena ; Soil properties ; Soil science
  • The soils were surveyed, described and examined at a remote forested high-elevation site of the Bavarian Forest (Germany). They derive from periglacial gneiss debris consisting of an upper, loose stratum and an indurated zone below. The different

  • Forest resources in a Nepali village in 1980 and 1990 : the positive influence of population growth
  • Forest ; Forest resources ; Himalaya ; Land use ; Mountain ; Nepal ; Population pressure ; Resource management ; Village
  • Between 1980-1990, the village of Bhogteni in the Middle Hills of central Nepal improved their forests despite an annual population growth rate of 2,5 percent. This empirical study poses provocative ideas on population pressure, resource use

  • Structural variation and dynamics of lodgepole pine forests in Lassen Volcanic National Park, California
  • Biogeography ; California ; Climatic variability ; Forest ; Microclimate ; National park ; Pine ; Soil properties ; United States ; Vegetation dynamics
  • Diameter structure, age/diameter regressions, and stem dispersion patterns reveal spatial variability in lodgepole pine forest structure and dynamics in Lassen Volcanic National Park (LVNP). Spatial variability in this early successional species

  • Ecosystem ; Fire ; Forest ; Israel ; Rill wash;Runoff ; Soil ; Soil erosion ; Soil properties ; Soil science
  • wildfire at the end of summer 1988. The results suggest that light and moderate forest fires may increase soil fertility without cousing a marked difference in soil runoff and erosion.

  • Periglacial overlaying strata in the Bavarian forest methods for their stratigraphic division and questions about their ecological significance
  • Bavaria ; Ecology ; Forest ; Germany ; Loess ; Pedogenesis ; Periglacial features ; Soil properties ; Stratigraphy
  • Character and stratigraphic division of the overlaying strata of the Bavarian Forest are described. The differentiation of stratum boundaries carried out in the field is verified by means of a wide spectrum of laboratory analyses. Different

  • A comparison of earthflow movement mechanisms on forested and grassed slopes, Raukumara Peninsula, North Island, New Zealand
  • Surface movement rates on forested earthflows are 2-3 orders of magnitude less than those on grassed earthflows. Subsurface deformation results largely from extension flow on grassed earthflows and from compression flow on forested earthflows
  • . A rafting mechanism in which blocks of roots from individual trees interact with those of neighbouring trees to retard surface movement is used to explain deformation profiles of forested earthflows. The rheology of earthflow materials is changed

  • This article reviews the current status of organic matter in tropical soils beneath forest and savanna vegetation types and the contribution made to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations from decomposition processes in the soil and as a result
  • of tropical forest clearance. The second aim is to examine the role of soil organic matter in stabilizing soil structure, in nutrient cycling and in ion retention in tropical soils and to assess the effects of forest clearance and subsequent cultivation
