Surface soil reclamation is used to increase the re-establishment of native vegetation following disturbance through preservation and eventual replacement of the indigenous seed reserves. Employed widely in the mining industry, soil reclamation has had variable success in re-establishing native...
Seed traits and germination responses to water availability can be related to seedling emergence and survival in sand and thus can affect the adaptability of species to desert dune environments. Water absorption by seeds, germination speed, responses of germination to water stress (imposed using...
Exotic species have been widely used in reforestation in arid areas in northern Africa, as they provide ecosystem services that native species may be unable to supply. But information on their effect on ecosystem function and composition is scarce. We have evaluated the effect of 20-year-old...
Land application of secondary industrial effluent to Chihuahuan Desert upland near Las Cruces, New Mexico, was designed to meet the water demand of creosote and mesquite shrubs. The major objective of this study was to assess changes in chemical and physical properties of desert soils after 4...
The effects of weathering on alkaline minesoil (root-zone material) chemistry are poorly documented in literature. Coversoils (i.e., topsoils) enhance the remediation of minesoils through physical and chemical buffering between saline/sodic root-zone material and the reconstructed soil surface....
In semi-arid Sahel, soil erosion by water is one major factor accounting for negative nutrient balances in agricultural systems. A field experiment was conducted on a Ferric Lixisol in Burkina Faso to assess the effects of soil and water conservation barriers (stone rows or grass strips of...
