The influence of tree species on forest soils: processes and patterns

  title={The influence of tree species on forest soils: processes and patterns},
  author={Dan Binkley},
Apparatus for necking-in an end portion of can bodies includes a rotatable turret. A plurality of circumferentially spaced clamping devices are provided on the turret, each for clamping a major portion of the outer circumferential surface of a can body between the opposite end edges thereof. The turret carries a corresponding plurality of circumferentially spaced spindles. Each spindle carries inner and outer forming rolls mounted on roll axes extending parallel to and spaced from the…

Species and Spacing Effects of Northern Conifers on Forest Productivity and Soil Chemistry in a 50-Year-Old Common Garden Experiment
24-year-old western redcedar (Thuja plicata Donn ex. D. Don), western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla [Raf.] Sag), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii Mirb), and Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis [Bong.]
The influence of understory vine maple on forest floor and mineral soil properties in coastal temperate forests
In coastal forests of the Pacific Northwest, vine maple (Acer circinatum Pursh) is a common understory tree species. We studied the influence of vine maple, growing in the understory of a stand of
Experimental in situ transformation of vermiculites to study the weathering impact of tree species on the soil
Weathering of soil minerals under forest seems to depend on the species present. To study the influence of tree species we placed unweathered vermiculites in the soil and assessed the impact in terms
Influences of evergreen gymnosperm and deciduous angiosperm tree species on the functioning of temperate and boreal forests
Evidence of the influence of evergreen gymnosperm (EG) and deciduous angiosperm (DA) tree species on the water balance, physical–chemical soil properties and biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nutrients is reviewed.
The right choice of tree species to form forest cultures is of paramount importance to the preservation of the diversity, fertility and ecological stability of forest ecosystems. To that end, we
Patterns of nitrogen conservation in shrubs and grasses in the Patagonian Monte, Argentina
Evergreen shrubs with low N-resorption efficiency provide a more N-rich substrate, with probably higher capability of N mineralization than that of perennial grasses, which may eventually enhance N fertility and N availability in N-poor soils.
Forest plantation productivity – soil interactions within Western Forest-Steppe of Ukraine: effects of pH and cations
Abstract Dark grey podzolized soils on the loess like loams, which are represented in the soil cover within fresh and humidity gradients in the Western Forest Steppe of Ukraine, are characterized by
Impact of common European tree species on the chemical and physicochemical properties of fine earth: an unusual pattern
Case studies are necessary to assess the effects of changes to tree species on the physicochemical and chemical properties of soils. To achieve this, the fine earth under five tree species was


Morphologic Development and Clay Redistribution in Lysimeter Soils under Chaparral and Pine
Lysimeter soils under 41-yr-old stands of chaparral species and a pine (Pinus coulteri B. Don) were studied to determine the biotic influence on soil morphologic development. The large (5.3 by 5.3 by
The impact of tree species on soil productivity
The impact of tree species on soil productivity forms part of the system of effects and influences of management in man-made forests. Research instigated to ascer­ tain the causes of the die-back and
Patch Formation and Maintenance in an Old‐Growth Hemlock‐Hardwood Forest
MOSAIC, a Markov simulation model in which transition probabilities depend on neighborhood species composition, shows that the negative reciprocal association between hemlock and sugar maple of the intensity observed in this study, could lead to spatial separation into monodominant patches over long time periods.
Streamflow Changes Associated with Forest Cutting, Species Conversions, and Natural Disturbances
An original research objective in the establishment of Coweeta was to measure and evaluate the effects of man’s use of the forest on the quantity and timing of streamflow. Over the past 50 years at
Exchangeable K was well buffered in surface mineral soils apparently due to a combination of biological recycling via leaching of canopies and forest floor plus mineral weathering release, and total K removals from the soil exceeded reductions in soil exchangeable K by nearly 20-fold.
The pedogenic effects of different species and vegetation types and the implications of succession
SUMMARY The paper surveys the changes in pH, organic matter type and degree of podzolization of poorly buffered, freely drained, siliceous soils in Britain caused by the predominant plant species
Spatial extent of impact of red alder on soil chemistry of adjacent conifer stands
The effects of alder on soil chemistry appeared limited to a distance of less than half the height of the trees, and soil pH was depressed for about 5 m from the alder–conifer stand.
Factors Determining Differences in Soil pH in Adjacent Conifer and Alder-Conifer Stands
Tree species may differ in their influence on biogeochentical cycles, leading to differing rates of soil acidification. Over time, quantitative and qualitative changes develop in the characteristics
The influence of Western Hemlock and Western Redcedar on soil properties.
Soils beneath very old western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg.) and western redcedar (Thuja plicata Donn) trees at three sites in Washington and Idaho were compared. The sites differed in
