Nutrient loss from forest ecosystems by burning and leaching can be estimated by comparing nutrient stores before and after the disturbance, and by measuring the nutrient fluxes during disturbance. We applied both methods to a clear cutting experiment near Belem, Eastern Amazon, in a correct time series of 15 months duration. Nutrient flux measurements include wood export, loss to the atmosphere by burning, and leaching. The latter was based on water flux simulation with a soil water model, and… CONTINUE READING
