Soil structure has a greater effect on the rooting of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) than nitrogen fertilisation rate or genotype (2023)
Journal Article
Mawodza, T., Zhou, H., Atkinson, B. S., Atkinson, J. A., Sturrock, C. J., Riche, A. B., …Mooney, S. J. (2023). Soil structure has a greater effect on the rooting of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) than nitrogen fertilisation rate or genotype. Rhizosphere, 27, Article 100770. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rhisph.2023.100770

Despite extensive research over the last century concerning the application of nitrogen fertilizer to support the production of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), our understanding on how this impacts on root growth in subsoils is limited. In this study,... Read More about Soil structure has a greater effect on the rooting of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) than nitrogen fertilisation rate or genotype.

Understory vegetation supports more abundant and diverse butterfly communities in oil palm plantations (2023)
Journal Article
Reiss-Woolever, V. J., Advento, A. D., Aryawan, A. A. K., Caliman, J., Foster, W. A., Naim, M., …Turner, E. C. (2023). Understory vegetation supports more abundant and diverse butterfly communities in oil palm plantations. Frontiers in Forests and Global Change, 6, Article 1205744. https://doi.org/10.3389/ffgc.2023.1205744

Introduction: The cultivation of oil palm, from which palm oil, the world’s most widely traded vegetable oil, is processed, has had marked effects on ecosystems and native species across the tropics. While declines in biodiversity due to conversion t... Read More about Understory vegetation supports more abundant and diverse butterfly communities in oil palm plantations.

Indian Ocean glacial deoxygenation and respired carbon accumulation during mid-late Quaternary ice ages (2023)
Journal Article
Chang, L., Hoogakker, B. A. A., Heslop, D., Zhao, X., Roberts, A. P., De Deckker, P., …Harrison, R. J. (2023). Indian Ocean glacial deoxygenation and respired carbon accumulation during mid-late Quaternary ice ages. Nature Communications, 14, Article 4841. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-023-40452-1

Reconstructions of ocean oxygenation are critical for understanding the role of respired carbon storage in regulating atmospheric CO2. Independent sediment redox proxies are essential to assess such reconstructions. Here, we present a long magnetofos...

Tropical peat surface oscillations are a function of peat condition at North Selangor peat swamp forest, Malaysia (2023)
Journal Article
Ledger, M. J., Evans, C. D., Large, D. J., Evers, S., Brown, C., Jovani-Sancho, A. J., …Sjögersten, S. (2023). Tropical peat surface oscillations are a function of peat condition at North Selangor peat swamp forest, Malaysia. Frontiers in Environmental Science, 11, Article 1182100. https://doi.org/10.3389/fenvs.2023.1182100

Tropical peatland condition across southeast Asia is deteriorating as a result of conversion to agriculture and urban zones. Conversion begins by lowering the water table, which leads to peat decomposition, subsidence and increased risk of large-scal...
