The long-term impacts of repeated prescribed-burning on surface (0-30 cm) soil chemical properties and forest floor nutrients in two contrasting native eucalypt forests in south-east Queensland, Australia were assessed. Most effects were confined to the topsoil (0-10 cm). At the dry sclerophyll site, more than 40 years of annual burning had not led to any loss in topsoil total nitrogen and organic carbon but had significantly increased topsoil acid-extractable phosphorus. At the wet sclerophyll… CONTINUE READING
