Observations on the rooting patterns of some agroforestry trees in an arid region of north-western India
TLDR
Root architecture of 6-year-old trees of 9 indigenous and 3 exotic species growing in arid climate of north-western India shows large variation in horizontal and vertical spread of roots, which has implications for the ecological niche of the species, and its usefulness in agroforestry systems.
SECONDARY SUCCESSION FOLLOWING SLASH AND BURN AGRICULTURE IN NORTH-EASTERN INDIA I. BIOMASS, LITTERFALL AND PRODUCTIVITY
TLDR
The enrichment quotient (the weight of an element in the vegetation divided by its rate of uptake) was higher for phosphorus and potassium than for nitrogen, calcium and magnesium, indicating the rapid rate of accumulation of phosphorus andassium in the standing biomass.

Soil nutrient status of hill agro-ecosystems and recovery pattern after slash and burn agriculture (Jhum) in north-eastern India
SummaryThe present study deals with fertility changes in agro-ecosystems where vegetation is removed by slash and burn procedures, the land is planted to crops (cultivated) for one year, and then
Biodrainage potential of Eucalyptus tereticornis for reclamation of shallow water table areas in north-west India
Ground water table (g.w.t.) levels were measured twice a month for 2 years in 50 observation wells installed inside and outside the two 18-year-old and 350 m apart plantations of Eucalyptus
Above-ground and below-ground biomass allocation in important fuelwood trees from arid north-western India
TLDR
Above-ground and below-ground biomass and its allocation pattern in 6-year-old trees of nine species, Acacia catechu, A. catechU, Albizia lebbeck, Azadirachta indica, Dalbergia sissoo, Melia azedarach, Morus alba, Prosopis cineraria and Ziziphus mauritiana from arid north-western India were studied.
