Environmental parameters affecting the concentration of iodine in New Zealand pasture
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America & Soil Science of America, 2019-08-21)
Iodine (I) is an essential trace element commonly deficient in agricultural systems. Whereas there is much information on I in food crops, there is a lacuna of knowledge on the environmental factors that affect pasture I ...
Quantifying ecosystem rejuvenation: foliar nutrient concentrations and vegetation communities across a dust gradient and a chronosequence
(Springer Netherlands on behalf of the Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2013-06)
Background and aims: Due to long-term weathering of land surfaces, aeolian nutrient contributions can become essential to maintain ecosystem fertility and avoid retrogression. However, studies that consider the qualitative ...
Phosphorus fertilization by active dust deposition in a super-humid, temperate environment – Soil phosphorus fractionation and accession processes
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-03)
The inventory of soil phosphorus (P) is subject to significant changes over time. The main primary form, bedrock-derived apatite P, becomes progressively lost through leaching, or transformed into more immobile and less ...
Rapid soil production and weathering in the Southern Alps, New Zealand
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2014-02-07)
Evaluating conflicting theories about the influence of mountains on carbon dioxide cycling and climate requires understanding weathering fluxes from tectonically uplifting landscapes. The lack of soil production and ...
