Organic matter quality in cryosols : effect on soil nitrogen dynamics and greenhouse gas emissions
Over the past millennia, complex terrestrial ecosystems have evolved in the Arctic. However, the stability of these unique ecosystems is in jeopardy because of climate changes. Due to the fact that Arctic soils store great ...
Greenhouse gas production and consumption in soils of the Canadian High Arctic
Micro-organisms living in the soils of the Canadian High Arctic produce and consume the greenhouse gases (GHGs) CO2, CH4, and N2O, contributing to global nutrient and GHG cycles; however, different vegetation and soil ...
THE SHORT- AND LONG- TERM EFFECT OF ZINC AND COPPER CONTAMINATION ON SOIL MICROBIAL FUNCTIONS
Soil microbial functions are vital for maintaining soil health and are therefore also essential for the provision of services required to support human and ecological health. The inadvertent release of trace metals into ...
Characterizing organic matter and nutrient status in smelter-affected soils
Forest vegetation dieback has occurred around Flin Flon, Manitoba and Creighton, Saskatchewan since the beginning of the 20th century, when sulphide ore smelting began in the area. In order to support future revegetation ...
Utilizing Remotely Piloted Air Systems in the Delineation of Functional Land Management Zones
Global food production must increase significantly before 2050 to ensure food security. This necessitates the intensification of agriculture to keep with land resource constraints. Meanwhile, climate change is occurring, ...
