    Microorganisms are the driving force behind the circulation and transformation of the soil substance. The development of soil bacterial communities is critical for ecosystem restoration and evolution. In the Loess Plateau, coal mining activities have aggravated the deterioration of the fragile local ecological environment. The adaptive development of soil bacterial communities in response to.

Wilde (), in his very readable book “Forest Soils and Forest Growth,” quotes the following from the Kalevala, the National Epic of the Finns, dated to approximately BCE, showing that early man recognized the interaction of soil type and vegetation.

Introduction. During mining and reclamation processes, soil organic C (SOC) is lost in a variety of ways. Carbon is initially lost from mined soils in the same manner that organic C (OC) is lost from tilled soils, i.e., due to the disintegration of soil aggregates that leads to organic matter (OM) being decomposed and the C in it, ultimately respired (Adu and Oades,Ussiri and Lal, ).Cited by: Influence of reclamation management practices on microbial.

Temporal changes in microbial community function (enzymatic activities) and structure (phospholipid fatty acids) were studied in a post-mining chronosequence of coal discard sites of different rehabilitation ages. The objective was to determine whether temporal changes in microbial community function and structure were related to rehabilitation age or management by: Microbial populations in undisturbed soils and coal mine spoils in semi-arid conditions Author: R.

the world and in all vegetation types within these lands, including the arid and semi-arid regions of North America (Rosentreter and Belnap ). Also known as microbiotic, cryptobiotic, biotic, and cryptogamic crusts, biological soil crusts are often overlooked due to their tendency to blend in with the soil; thus, they are seldom collected.

Arid and semi-arid environments occupy around 37% of the land on earth. Soils in these environments differ from those in humid zones in seven significant respects, all owing to scant moisture (Cooke, Warren, and Goudie,p. 45): Less weathering and leaching, which has four consequences: coarse textures, shallow soils, retention of soluble.
