    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    The nutritional sustainability of a short-rotation Eucalyptus grandis plantation system was evaluated in a trial located at Karkloof, KwaZulu-Natal, South Mrica, by determining nutrient pools and fluxes. Nutrient pools in the forest floor and biomass (above- and below-ground) were assessed...
  5. The impact of the addition of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> wood chips on nitrogen availability in plantation soils

    The impact of the addition of <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> wood chips on nitrogen availability in plantation soils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    The impact of plantation residues, as a result of clearfelling, on nutrient availability in plantation systems, as well as the difficulties during subsequent planting and harvesting, should be considered in the development of plantation management strategies. The aim of this...

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The recovery of cleared Colophospermum mopane thicket in the eastern Transvaal lowveld, to a level where its effect on grass production is similar to that in the pre‐cleared state, occurs within fourteen years. Based on certain assumptions, the ‘effective duration’...
