It is commonly acknowledged that ants improve the hydraulic properties of soils in which they build their nests.
When biochar (BC) ages in soil, its properties change substantially: cation exchange capacity (CEC), surface area and porosity increase and water repellency decreases, consequently affecting the inter
This study assessed the carbon (C) budget and the C stocks in major compartments of the soil food web (bacteria, fungi, protists, nematodes, meso- and macrofauna) in an arable field with/without litte

Although wetlands are known to provide vital ecosystem services, the current state of wetlands in Ethiopia in terms of their ecosystem service components remains poorly understood.
SDG target 11.5 is concerned with the impact and reduction of disasters. This chapter advances knowledge on disaster risk reduction, by exploring the health impacts to those survivors living in environments that have been impacted by disaster.
This book chapter addresses goals 13, 15, 11 and 14 by discussing conservation efforts to protect biodiversity on tropical islands
Mangrove forests provide critical services around the globe to both human populations and the ecosystems they occupy.
The net ecosystem exchange (NEE) is the difference between ecosystem CO2 assimilation and CO2 losses to the atmosphere.
