Application of Dexter’s soil physical quality index: an Irish case study

focus of the current study), chemical and biological aspects of soil across soilscapes and, therefore, defines the capacity of agricultural soil to deliver multiple functions, such as primary productivity, nutrient cycling, water filtration ( Fenton et al ., 2011 ; Jahangir et al ., 2013 ), habitat for biodiversity and carbon sequestration ( Karlen et al ., 1997 ; Wiebe 2003 ; Schulte et al ., 2015 ). This capacity can be overextended, resulting in degradation of the system by compaction ( Soane and van Ouwerkerk, 1998 ; Vero et al ., 2013 ), erosion ( Regan

Effects of mycorrhizal inoculation and digestate fertilisation on triticale biomass production using fungicide-coated seeds

( Iizumi and Ramankutty, 2016 ; Lesk et al ., 2016 ). Furthermore, food demand, linked to the ever-increasing world population, has increased in the last few decades and is expected to increase in the future. This growing pressure on agroecosystems to maximize their productivity per unit area, time and input (e.g., nutrients, water, energy) ( Lal, 2008 ) can bring environmental impacts such as loss in soil organic matter and fertility and increase in emission of greenhouse gas. In this context, organic fertilisation can be an efficient practice to reduce such impacts

Aging concrete structures: a review of mechanics and concepts

associated with lacking models for concrete aging, coupled with shrinkage and creep effects, and their interaction with other deterioration mechanisms—topics that are currently being addressed by the ongoing research. 2 Introduction The societal relevance of the construction industry can be highlighted by the fact that almost half of the total national wealth is tied up in long-lasting building investments. In recent years, the steadily increasing average age of our infrastructure together with budgetary constraints and an increasing awareness towards climate change

Trends, over 14 years, in the ground cover on an unimproved western hill grazed by sheep, and associated trends in animal performance

proximity of streams, open drains or other localised disturbance required that the orientation of the net be modified at a few grid intersections to ensure maximum representation of the natural surface. A pointer, with a circular footprint (5 mm diameter), was dropped vertically at each node of the net mesh (including those on its perimeter, thus the equivalent of a 2 m × 2 m quadrat) through the vegetation canopy, where present, to the ground surface. One feature (plant species, bare soil, boulder/rock/stone, standing water or faeces) was recorded for each ground hit
