The impact of understory vegetation control or replacement with selected plant species, which are common forest plantation management practices, on soil C pool and greenhouse gas (GHG, including CO2, CH4 and N2O) emissions are poorly understood. The objective of this paper was to investigate the effects of understory vegetation management on the dynamics of(More)
The effect of plant invasion on soil microbial communities in various ecosystems has increasingly become the focus of research over the last decade. Moso bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis) invasion of native forests in Tianmushan National Nature Reserve located in southeastern China has resulted in greatly decreased biodiversity of plants and birds. We combined(More)
Moso bamboo is recognized as phytoremediation plant due to production of huge biomass and high tolerance in stressed environment. Hydroponics and pot experiments were conducted to investigate mechanism of copper tolerance and to evaluate copper accumulation capacity of Moso bamboo. In hydroponics experiment there was non significant variation in MDA(More)
Bamboo plants have been proven to be rich in phytolith-occluded carbon (PhytOC) and play an important role in reducing atmospheric concentrations of CO2. The object of this paper was to obtain more accurate methods for estimation of PhytOC stock in monopodial bamboo because previous studies may have underestimated it. Eight monopodial bamboo species, widely(More)
A hydroponics experiment was aimed at identifying the lead (Pb) tolerance and phytoremediation potential of Moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens) seedlings grown under different Pb treatments. Experimental results indicated that at the highest Pb concentration (400 μmol/L), the growth of bamboo seedlings was inhibited and Pb concentrations in leaves, stems,(More)
Outliers are classified as global outliers and spatial outliers. Up to now, there is little information about the outliers especially the spatial outliers and their influence on the spatial structure modeling of soil properties. A total of 537 soil samples were collected based on a 30 × 30 m grid in a permanent dairy farm in southeast Ireland. Graphic(More)
Hydroponics experiment was conducted to identify cadmium (Cd) tolerance and phytoextraction potential of moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens) seedlings grown under different levels of Cd. Application of Cd adversely affected the overall growth and ultrastructural characteristics of moso bamboo. At the highest Cd concentration (400 µM), the growth of moso(More)
Chinese hickory (Carya cathayensis), a popular nut food tree species, is mainly distributed in southeastern China. A field study was carried out to investigate the effect of long-term intensive management on fertility of soils under a C. cathayensis forest. Results showed that after 26 years' intensive management, the soil organic carbon (SOC) content of(More)
