Conversion of humid tropical forest to agriculture significantly alters trace gas emissions from soils. We report nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO), and methane (CH4) fluxes from secondary forest soils prior to and during deforestation, and throughout the first agricultural cropping. Annual average nitrogen oxide emissions from forest soils were 1.5 ng N cm−2 h−1 for N2O and 0.9 ng N cm−2 h−1 for NO. Forest clearing increased the level of extractable nitrate in soils and average nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
