The present work studied the germination recovery of Arthrocnemum macrostachyum, Juncus acutus, and Schoenus nigricans seeds after submersion in hypersaline solution of different salt types. Germination recovery of seed lots incubated in 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5% saline solutions of NaCl, MgCl2, MgSO4,...
Soil samples were collected from 24 sites along a precipitation transect in semi-arid and arid southern Africa (Botswana and Namibia), ranging from approximately 550 mm average annual rainfall to less than 50 mm and grouped into four precipitation classes. The objective was to determine whether...
Water conservation and prevention of salt accumulation are important issues in arid and semi-arid regions. Mulching is the most frequently used method for water conservation and prevention of salt accumulation. A mulch with various layers, hence named layered mulch (LM), was applied for...
The Alxa Plateau of Inner Mongolia exhibits vast differences in vertical distribution in vegetation and soil types. The plant communities range from the alpine meadows at the top of the Helan Mountain (3500 m) to the shrub desert at the foothills (1360 m). This type of ecosystem is common in the...
Physical indicators of soil quality in relation to soil erodibility were evaluated in the submontaneous tract of Punjab (India). A field experiment was conducted with both natural and simulated rainfall conditions under four land uses—barren, cultivated, grassland, and forest. Sustainability...
We assessed impact of 5 years continuous application of traditional tillage practices (no-till (NT), shallow tillage (ST) and ridging tillage (RT)) applied by smallholder farmers in central Tanzania. Soil samples were collected at two different soil depths to verify farmer' perceptions. At 0–15...
