In the Jomoro district in Ghana, tree plantations were the first cause of deforestation in the past, drastically reducing the area occupied by primary forests. The aim of this study was to quantify soil organic carbon (SOC) losses due to a change in land use from primary forest to tree plantations (cocoa, coconut, rubber, oil palm) on the different(More)
The aim of this work was to quantify the soil organic C (SOC) stock in the top 30 cm of mineral soil for the whole Italian territory, according to the different land use types of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) cropland category (arable land, agroforestry, vineyards, olive groves, orchards and rice fields), as a basis for future land(More)
Changes in soil organic carbon (SOC) as a consequence of selective logging activities are often neglected in tropical areas, even within activities that aim to promote the permanence of forest C stocks (e.g. REDD+). In this context, we assessed the magnitude of the impact of selective logging on the SOC levels in three chronosequences in Ghana, Cameroon and(More)
