The effects of soil properties and vegetation cover on the sedimentation of forest roads

This study was conducted to investigate the interaction of soil properties and vegetation cover on soil loss from forest road prism. Rainfall simulations were carried out on road surface, fillslope and cutslope. Runoff and sediment samples were collected every 4 min and then total soil loss was measured. Samples from top soil were randomly collected for analysis and grouping soil into A, B and C. Results showed that on...

The influences of forest fire on the vegetation and some soil properties of a savanna ecosystem in Nigeria

The effect of forest fire on natural forest in Southern Guinea Savanna in Nigeria was investigated. The study was carried out in Oro forest reserve in Kwara State, Nigeria. The study site was located in the north-eastern and south-western portions of the reserve. In each location in the forest, one hectare (100 m × 100 m) was divided into 100 plots of 10 m × 10 m. Twenty plots were randomly selected for...
