These soils constitute excellent models to study both natural and man-induced VA mycorrhizal effect over plant...
Soil respiration is one of the main processes of loss of organic C, but few studies so far have evaluated losses from arid and semiarid soils as compared with other ecosystems. Spatial variation in CO 2 efflux is especially important in semiarid areas, where the distribution of ecological factors...
Nematode community analysis may provide a useful tool to quantify soil health. Nematode communities were monitored for 5 years during a 12-year period in the sustainable agriculture farming systems (SAFS) project at UC Davis, where conventional (CONV), low-input (LOW) and organic (ORG) management...
