Theory and Practical Application of Heat Pulse to Measure Sap Flow
Heat pulse methods can be used for accurate measurements of sap flow in plant stems provided a reliable calibration procedure is used to relate the measured heat pulse velocity to the actual sapExpand
Does biochar influence soil physical properties and soil water availability?
AimsThis study aims to (i) determine the effects of incorporating 47 Mg ha−1 acacia green waste biochar on soil physical properties and water relations, and (ii) to explore the different mechanismsExpand
Water repellency and its measurement by using intrinsic sorptivity
Measurements of intrinsic sorptivity (S*) by using both ethanol and water were used to indicate the extent of water-repellency in soil. Experiments with initially dry, acid-purified sand verifiedExpand
Natural and induced cadmium-accumulation in poplar and willow: Implications for phytoremediation
Potentially poplars and willows may be used for the in situ decontamination of soils polluted with Cd, such as pasturelands fertilised with Cd-rich superphosphate fertiliser. Poplar (Kawa and Argyle)Expand
ESTIMATION OF SOIL HEAT FLUX FROM NET RADIATION DURING THE GROWTH OF ALFALFA
Abstract Soil heat flux studies have indicated that the instantaneous daytime flux can be estimated as a fraction of the net radiation, the ratio ranging from 0.1 to 0.5, depending on the amount ofExpand
Arsenic hyperaccumulation by aquatic macrophytes in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, New Zealand
TLDR
A strong and positive correlation between Fe and As is found, along with a geometric mean Fe concentration of 3798 mg kg −1 . Expand
Soil Amendments Affecting Nickel and Cobalt Uptake by Berkheya coddii : Potential Use for Phytomining and Phytoremediation
TLDR
Land management procedures would enhance phytoremediation and phytomining operations for nickel and cobalt, despite increasing the solubility (plant availability) of these elements in the soil. Expand
Phytoextraction: an assessment of biogeochemical and economic viability
Phytoextraction describes the use of plants to remove metals and other contaminants from soils. This low-cost technology has potential for the in situ remediation of large areas of contaminated land.Expand
