    Forest soils have been studied by many generations of soil scientists. Some studies have been focused mainly on ecologic characteristics, for example on surface organic layers in forests in Denmark, which introduced the terms ‘mor’ and ‘mull’; while other investigations have dealt with nutrients, water supplies, soil organisms (especially mycorrhiza-forming fungi), fertilizer additions. Large numbers of tropical trees from natural forests or plantation forest are available for human consumption and management. This book focuses on the prospects and utilization of tropical plantation trees in context of economic and business, planting, managing stocks, and uses of trees converted to various wood-based products.

    Integrated Soil Fertility Management in the Tropics About TSBF-CIAT The Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Programme (TSBF) was founded in to develop capacity for soil biology as a research discipline in the tropical regions, and to conduct research on the role of soilFile Size: KB. Tropical Soils. Tropical Soils are found in conditions where it is very hot, and humid, with a lot of rainfall. A lot of these soils are found around the equatorial regions from o North and South. These soils are often very deep, and are some of the oldest soils in the world. There are tropical regions in South East Asia, Central and South.

Management of tropical plantation-forests and their soil litter system: litter, biota and soil-nutrient dynamics. An overview of the structure and function of soil-litter systems (SLSs) in tropical tree plantations is presented.

There are six major forest soil groups in humid tropics, but on landforms suitable for short rotation tree crops, the majority of the soils are classified as Acrisols, Ferralsols, or Podzols in the World Reference Base for Soil Resources (Kauffmanet al.

The major soil groups available for plantation forestry are characterised. “This coherent overview of the major issues surrounding the ecology and management of forest soils will be particularly useful to students taking courses in soil science, forestry, agronomy, ecology, natural resource management, environmental management and conservation, as well as professionals in forestry dealing with the productivity of forests and functioning of watersheds.”.

Plantation crops and forestry are also prevalent. The continuously or seasonally waterlogged lowlands are largely developed for irrigated and rainfed rice cultivation. Tropical sandy soils have a wide range of limiting factors for agricultural use, these include nutrient deficiencies, acidity, water stress and poor physical attributes.

The literature on tropical secondary forests, defined as those resulting from human disturbance (e.g. logged forests and forest fallows), is reviewed to address questions related to their extent, rates of formation, ecological characteristics, values and uses to humans, and potential for by: The first approach in good soil management is to attempt to match the crop requirements with soil properties, with or without amendments.

These results are now discussed in the context of the contribution of harvest residues to nutrient cycling in short-rotation plantations of acacia in the tropics, especially the role of bark residue.
