The Effect of NaCl on growth, N2 fixation (acetylene reduction), and percentage total nitrogen in Leucaena leucocephala (Leguminosae) var. K-8.
TLDR
It is concluded that NaCl concentrations of 0.025 mol/L and greater caused a major decrease in growth, N(2) fixation, and percentage of tissue nitrogen in L. leucocephala plants that were less than 1 yr old.
The potential of rotational woodlot and ngitiri systems in carbon sequestration and soil fertility improvement in Meatu District, Tanzania
Rotational woodlots and Ngitiri fallows have considerable amount of carbon storage and potential for soil fertility improvement though not well quantified. The objectives of this study were to

Structure and function of traditional agroforestry systems in the western Himalaya. II. Nutrient cycling
TLDR
Agrihortisilvicultural system is remarkably efficient in view of biomass productivity for fuel, fodder and fruits, and also from nutrient point of view provided losses through harvest are compensated externally.
Nutrient Concentrations in Plants in the Brookhaven Oak-Pine Forest
Distribution of nutrient elements (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Fe, and Na) varied substantially among the tissues and species of a late successional oak—pine forest at Brook—haven, New York. Mean nutrient
Nutrient Cycling in a Eucalyptus obliqua (L'hérit.) Forest. I. Litter Production and Nutrient Return
TLDR
The internal, or 'biochemical', cycling of phosphorus is probably of major significance in the functioning of eucalypt forests on Australian soils characterized by a low phosphorus content.
Structure and Function of Oak Forests in Central Himalaya. II. Nutrient Dynamics
TLDR
Compartment models for nutrient dynamics have been developed to represent the distribution of nutrient contents and net annual fluxes within the system and ranged between 0·66-0·84 yr−1 and 1·19-1·56 yr−2, respectively.
Litter fall and nutrient cycling in karri (Eucalyptus diversicolor F. Muell.) forest in relation to stand age
TLDR
The amounts of annual litter fall and of nutrients cycling in litter are among the largest reported for Australian forests and cycling of Ca, K and Mg in mature karri forest is greater than has been reported for any other eucalypt forest.
Studies of Mineral Cycling in a Montane Rain Forest in New Guinea: IV. Soil Characteristics and the Division of Mineral Elements between the Vegetation and Soil
TLDR
The soils possessed several features that could, together, partially explain the exceptional stature of the forest, and the proportional distribution of mineral nutrient capital between living plants, dead plant material, and soil is discussed.
Studies of Litter in Eucalyptus regnans Forests
TLDR
Lyrebirds are important 'cultivators' of the forest floor and litter may be buried once every two years, and Rapid nutrient turnover, high rainfall and excellent soil structure are favourable for high growth rates of these forests.
Run-off and Infiltration Losses Related to Shifting Agriculture (Jhum) in Northeastern India
Subsequent to slash-and-burn of the forested fallow, and during shifting agriculture (Jhum) in the northeastern hill areas of India, the system loses much of its capacity to hold soil nutrients.
