HOW SOIL FORMING PROCESSES DETERMINE SOIL-BASED VITICULTURAL ZONING
(Chilean Society of Soil Science/Sociedad Chilena de la Ciencia del Suelo, 2011)
Soil–plant transfer models for metals to improve soil screening value guidelines valid for São Paulo, Brazil
In Brazil, there is a lack of combined soil–plant data attempting to explain the influence of specific climate, soil conditions, and crop management on heavy metal uptake and accumulation by plants. As a consequence, ...
Native and non-native ruderals experience similar plant: soil feedbacks and neighbor effects in a system where they coexist
(Springer Heidelberg, 2015-07)
Recent applications of coexistence theory to plant invasions posit that non-natives establish in resident communities through either niche differences or traits conferring them with fitness advantages, the former being ...
Predatory activity of nematophagous fungi against Panagrellus redivivus in the soil under different plant species
The distribution of total and nematophagous fungi and nematodes is influenced by different plant species and environmental factors. The effect of moisture content and soil organic matter (SOM) in the frequency of fungi and ...
Can soil moisture strees be beneficial to grazing ruminants?
(In: ANNUAL ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY SIMPOSIUM, 17., 1993, Ithaca. Proceedings... IThaca: Cornell University, 1993., 1993)
Soil erosion in three grazed plant communities in northeastern Patagonia
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014-03)
Grazing has been identified as the main cause of land degradation in Patagonia. However, land degradation is highly variable among areas, even within the same paddock. This strongly suggests that different plant communities ...
Municipal solid waste compost amendment in agricultural soil: changes in soil microbial biomass
Agricultural application of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), as nutrient source for plants and as soil conditioner, is the most cost-effective option of MSW management because of its advantages over traditional means such as ...
Heavy metal availability in pelargonium hortorum rhizosphere: Interactions, uptake and plant accumulation
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-06)
The rhizosphere is a key area for the plant metal uptake. We studied heavy metal availability in the rhizosphere and the bulk soil, the interactions between metal ions, and their effects on heavy metal uptake and accumulation ...
Critical values of nitrogen indices in tomato plants grown in soil and nutrient solution determined by different statistical procedures.
(Pesquisa Agropecuária Brasileira, Brasília, v. 37, nº 10, p.1421-1429, out. 2002., 2011)
