Partial Least Squares Regression for Determining Factors Controlling Winter Wheat Yield
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield is influenced by many independent factors including precipitation, fertilization, soil nutrients, and crop variety. Due to high correlations of these factors, it isExpand

The dynamics of soil OC and N after conversion of forest to cropland
a b s t r a c t In this study, we investigated the dynamics of soil organic carbon (OC) and nitrogen (N) following the conversion of forest to cropland. The cropland had been converted from adjacentExpand

Soil texture determines the distribution of aggregate-associated carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous under two contrasting land use types in the Loess Plateau
Abstract Organic carbon (OC) and nutrient dynamics are closely related to soil texture, but how texture influences the distribution of OC and nutrients in aggregates in various land use types has notExpand

Effects of Long-Term Fertilization on Soil Organic Carbon and Nitrogen in a Highland Agroecosystem
Abstract The effects of fertilization on the distributions of organic carbon (OC) and nitrogen (N) in soil aggregates and whether these effects vary with cropping system have not been well addressed.Expand

Response of aggregate associated organic carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous to re-vegetation in agro-pastoral ecotone of northern China
Abstract The agro-pastoral ecotone is an ecologically fragile transition zone and suffers from extensive human-induced land-use changes. To understand how soil organic carbon (OC) and nutrients willExpand

Changes in soil physical and chemical properties after short drought stress in semi-humid forests
Abstract The Loess Plateau region of China is under increasing water shortage due to declining soil water content after reforestation. Thus, assessing the changes in soils properties in reforestedExpand

Effects of vegetation and slope aspect on soil nitrogen mineralization during the growing season in sloping lands of the Loess Plateau
Abstract The presence of vegetation has significant effects on soil nitrogen (N) turnover. However, whether these effects vary with slope aspect, vegetation type and time of season were notExpand

Response of carbon and nitrogen to afforestation from 0 to 5 m depth on two semiarid cropland soils with contrasting inorganic carbon concentrations
Abstract Soil carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) combining with physical and chemical properties play important roles in terrestrial C and nutrient cycling; however, how C and N in deep soils respond toExpand

Total soil organic carbon increases but becomes more labile after afforestation in China’s Loess Plateau
Abstract Afforestation of cropland is recommended as an effective approach to enhance soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration and labile organic C fractions. However, the stabilization of SOC and itsExpand
