The present study examined the effect of land covers on some of soil quality properties. For this purpose three plantation stands (i.e., Alnus subcordata L., Poplus deltoids L. and Taxadium distichum L. Rich) and an uncultivated land (control area) were considered. Soil samples were collected at two different depths (0-15 and 15-30 cm) and characterized(More)
Wild service tree (Sorbus torminalis) is a valuable native species in Iran. It is one of the best alternative species for plantation in Hyrcanian forest in Northern Iran. In order to determine tree age effects on seed germination in a mountainous nursery, seeds were collected from 40 individual trees on nearly 40000 hectares of Iranian residual forests(More)
Due to failure of oak (Quercus castaneifolia C.A. Meyer) natural regeneration, investigation on the best acorn sowing depth of this species under different levels of canopy cover is an important consideration in the Caspian forests, north of Iran. For this purpose, a study site with north-facing slope, clay-loam soil and 260-280 m a.s.l. was chosen in a(More)
Land-use changes and land cover strongly influence carbon stock and distribution within ecosystems. Changing the land-use from natural forest to other land-uses has been more rapid in the past few decades than at any time in Iran’s history. In this study, we investigated the effects of changing the land-use from natural forest to other land-uses on carbon(More)
