Litter plays a vital role in the nutrient cycling of plantations and agroforests. Silvicultural interventions can alter litter production and decay rates, thereby varying nutrient fluxes. We evalua...
Bamboo-based agroforestry is a promising option for sustainable land management in India. Optimal management of bamboo-based mixed species production systems, however, requires an understanding of… Expand
Belowground biomass production is a vital process that contributes to carbon sequestration. The relative proportion of belowground carbon allocation, however, varies with species, age, ecoclimatic… Expand
Initial spacing and pruning are silvicultural strategies that influence the resource acquisition capabilities of trees. A field study was conducted in the humid tropics of peninsular India to test… Expand
The humid agroclimatic conditions of Kerala, India permit the cultivation of an array of bamboo species of which Dendrocalamus strictus Roxb. (Nees.) is an important one on account of its high growth… Expand
Initial spacing and tree pruning are silvicultural strategies that influence tree growth and productivity, which determine the potential of tree stands to store C in the vegetation and soil. A field… Expand
In comparison to conventional grass monoculture practices, well managed silvopasture systems with high tree densities have greater potential for quality forage production and climate change… Expand
Abstract Despite the availability of a wide range of tools, measuring and explaining changes in land cover and land use in tropical regions can be extremely challenging. Kerala, India, is a… Expand
Sawn coconut palm wood of differing wood densities (high and medium) were treated with three organic preservatives, viz., neem oil, cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) and turpentine. The method adopted… Expand
