A review of ecological mechanisms for management practices of protective forests

Abstract A protective forest, including shelterbelt, windbreak, and shelter forest as its synonyms, is characterized by the protective functions of various forest types distributed or planted on ecologically fragile areas or nearby the objects that need to be protected using the ecological effects of forests. Ecological mechanisms for management practices of protective forests ...

Podcast: Is the growing ecosystem restoration movement our last hope for a sustainable future?

Today we’re taking a look at the growing movement to restore degraded ecosystems around the globe. Listen here: Ecological restoration refers to a range of human activities designed to promote the recovery of ecosystems that have been so disturbed that their structure has been altered and their healthy functioning has been impaired. Researchers are increasingly […]...

Indigenous fire stewardship: Federal/Tribal partnerships for wildland fire research and management

Over millennia, many indigenous and Tribal peoples in North America's fire-prone ecosystems developed sophisticated relationships with wildland fire that continue today. This article introduces philosophical, conceptual, and operational approaches to working with American Indians through research and management partnerships in the fields of wildland fire, forestry, and fuels, with application...

Date palm: The secret ingredient for a bio-circular economy?

2021 marks the beginning of a new era for sustainability. It's the year that the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) has begun. It's the year where climate change returned to the agenda for America, with Joe Biden sworn in as President. And, with a degree of hopefulness, it's the year where countries around the world could emerge from the pandemic....

Plant–soil feedbacks and the introduction of Castanea (chestnut) hybrids to eastern North American forests

<p>The reintroduction of disease-resistant hybrids is a commonly proposed solution to the introduction of pathogens and pests that weaken or eliminate native plant species. Plant interactions with soil biota result in plant–soil feedback(PSFs), which have consequences for individual plant growth and survival as well as broader community-level processes, such as species diversity and coexis...

Towards a microbial process-based understanding of the resilience of peatland ecosystem service provisioning – A research agenda

Peatlands are wetland ecosystems with great significance as natural habitats and as major global carbon stores. They have been subject to widespread exploitation and degradation with resulting losses in characteristic biota and ecosystem functions such as climate regulation. More recently, large-scale programmes have been established to restore peatland ecosystems and the various services they pro...

Environmental drivers of blue carbon burial and soil carbon stocks in mangrove forests

Mangroves can sequester and store massive amounts of CO<sub>2</sub>&nbsp;from the atmosphere in the form of live plant and detrital biomass. Large amounts of autochthonous and allochthonous carbon (C)&nbsp;are also stored in sediments, where waterlogged and anoxic conditions inhibit microbial breakdown of organic matter. As a result, C buried in sediments of mangroves can remai...

Research Articles: Method for classifying sites to Atlantic Rainforest restoration aiming to increase basin’s streamflows

Cecílio RA, Oliveira-Ravani LT, Zanetti SS, Mendes HDAMETHOD FOR CLASSIFYING SITES TO ATLANTIC RAINFOREST RESTORATION AIMING TO INCREASE BASIN’S STREAMFLOWSAbstract: We propose a method to classify priority sites for Atlantic Rainforest restoration aiming to increase basin streamflows. The Rainfall Forest to Water Production (RFWP) method uses multicriteria analysis supported by GIS techniques ...
