: The objective of this study was to evaluate the litterfall deposition, the decomposition rate (K L ) and the water holding capacity (WHC) of litter stored in the soil in two areas degraded by mining submitted to different methods of forest restoration: induction of natural regeneration (NR) and planting seedlings of native forest species (PS) with a forest fragment (FF) used as reference. The litterfall deposition was collected monthly over 12 months in collectors of 0.25 m 2 . The KL was…

Survival, growth and regeneration of forest species in mining areas in the Eastern Amazonia

Of the 156 species found, 18 presented less than 25% of survival and were therefore not recommended for use in the areas, while another 22 planted species showed more than 55% survival, indicating that they can be used in post-bauxite mining areas.

Ecosystem restoration after bauxite mining: favorable indicators for Technosols construction and soil management using liming and subsoiling

Although its economic importance, bauxite mining causes the loss of natural ecosystems. In this sense, the Technosols building from materials made or modified by man, such as mine tailings, is

Attributes of stand-age-dependent forest determine technosol fertility of Atlantic forest re-growing on mining tailings in Mariana, Brazil

Understanding how soil fertility changes due to environmental conditions and stand-age-dependent forest attributes is important for local-scale forest restoration. We evaluated the effects of

ESTOQUES DE CARBONO E RETENÇÃO HÍDRICA EM BIOMASSA DE GRAMÍNEAS NO AGRESTE DA PARAÍBA

A Brachiaria brizantha foi superior na producao de materia seca e na capacidade de retencao hidrica e o carbono orgânico total e o estoque de carbono nao variaram entre os tratamentos avaliados.

DINÂMICA DE SERAPILHEIRA EM UMA ÁREA DE FLORESTA DE TERRA FIRME, AMAZÔNIA OCIDENTAL

The highest yields occurred in the dry season and the decomposition rate was 1.37, indicating that the microbial activity in the study area is accelerated.

Responses of litterfall and decomposition rates indicated that the system was generally more responsive to the combined addition of N and P than to fertilization with N or P alone over the relatively short time span of this study.
