  • Research provides insight into the impacts of droughts in dry Alpine forests

    The impacts of drought on European trees are of high concern, especially under a changing climate. New research has indicated that, if summers become continually drier, sensitive species, such as larch and spruce, will suffer reduced growth in some Alpine areas. This could potentially compromise ecosystem services provided by forests in these areas. Drought can have major impacts on the growth ...

  • A new method for evaluating threats to soil biodiversity

    Little is known about the organisms that live within soil, although they play a vital role in the biological processes that support life on Earth. In a recent study, researchers calculated the relative risk of pressures caused by human activity on soil biodiversity in the EU, showing that intensive land use has the greatest impact. There is a lack of baseline data regarding soil biodiversity, ...

  • Carbon payments `could help enrich African soil`

    Paying farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa to sequester carbon may provide a stronger incentive to improve soil quality than simply offering official fertiliser subsidies, a modelling study has found. In recent years, fertiliser subsidies have been vigorously promoted to farmers in countries like Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia. But despite widespread levels of soil degradation, take-up rates ...

  • Improved soil water sensors aid in irrigation management

    Agriculture, a large user of water for irrigation, is under pressure to reduce water use. Increased urban population growth has created more competition for limited water supplies. While growers have used soil moisture probes to aid in irrigation management in the past, earlier probes required maintenance or were expensive or inadequate.  New electronic sensors have been developed that require ...

  • Healthy soils for a healthy planet

    Healthy soils are vital in a world challenged by climate change. We need to decide how best to use land to provide food for a growing population and how it can be used to mitigate the effects of manmade emissions. The quality of soil must be maintained or restored if it is to provide its essential services: cycling nutrients, water and air, supporting biodiversity and acting as a substantial ...
