BIOPHYSICAL LIMITS Altitude: 100-1500 m, Mean annual temperature: (min. 1-7) 22-27 (max. 34-47) deg. C, Mean annual rainfall: 1000-3000 (max. 6600) mm. Soil type: S. robusta flourishes best in deep, well-drained, moist, slightly acid sandy to clayey soils. It does not tolerate waterlogging. The most favourable soil is a moist sandy loam with good subsoil drainage. Availability of soil moisture is an important factor determining the occurrence of S. robusta. Shorea robusta, commonly known as sal…

Factors affecting the nutrient status of forest sites in a mountain watershed in Nepal.

SUMMARY Soil and foliage samples were collected from 136 sample sites in forested areas of the Dhulikhel Watershed, Nepal. Analyses showed that the soils have small values for pH, base saturation,

Soil Moisture Regime and Nitrogen Content in Natural Sal Forest ( Shorea robusta )

In the present study, seasonal changes in the moisture and N contents of the leaf, litter and soil upto 60 cm depth were carried out in the natural sal ( Shorea robusta ) forest, Jhajra, Dehra Dun. A

Sal ( Shorea robusta ) Natural Regeneration De-novo. Effect of Soil Working and Weeding on the Growth and Establishment

It is concluded that ideal light conditions have to be synchronised with these cultural operations in order to get the best results of growth and survival of seedlings.

The Unevenaged Sal Forests of Ramnagar Forest Division, Uttar Pradesh: their Constitution, Rate of Growth and Drain along with Empirical Yield and Stand Tables for Selection Type of Sal Crops

The 1935 and 1939 stand structures of some unevenaged sal forests of Ramnagar Forest Division, Uttar Pradesh, managed under the selection system, are examined with the help of data from nearly 15

Tree structure, regeneration and woody biomass removal in a sub-tropical forest of Mamlay watershed in the Sikkim Himalaya

The tree structure, tree dimension relationships and woody biomass production and removal of a sub-tropical natural forest in the Mamlay watershed of the Sikkim Himalaya shows good regeneration potential but the population structure revealed a marked paucity of trees of higher diameter classes due to removal of Trees of lower diameters.

Pattern of wood litter fall in five forests located along an altitudinal gradient in Central Himalaya

Wood and total litter fall were measured in five forests of the Kumaun Himalaya situated along an altitudinal gradient from 329 m to 1850 m. Total annual wood litter fall, which ranged from 93 to 197

Structure and function of a sub-tropical humid forest of Meghalaya III. Nutrient flow through water

This paper deals with water and nutrient flow through incident rainfall, throughfall and stemflow through a 50-year old stand of forest at Lailad. A larger proportion of water was accounted as

Biomass and Production Patterns of Three Dominant Tree Species along a Girth Series in a Natural Tropical Forest at Chakia, Varanasi (India)

Logarithmic regression equations relating tree components and total tree biomass to gbh were quite satisfactory and Relative growth rate showed a decreasing trend with increase in age or gbh of a tree.
