Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Soil acidification and base cation depletion are concerns for those wishing to manage central Appalachian hardwood forests sustainably. In this research, 2 experiments were established in 1996 and 1997 in two forest types common in the central Appalachian hardwood forests, to examine how these important forests respond to depletion of nutrients such as calcium and magnesium. After 10 years of treatment, relatively few effects were detected on soil nutrients or total aboveground biomass. This research will continue to monitor effects as the stands develop and as nutrient uptake and cycling changes over time.

Keywords: calcium depletion, vegetative diversity, liming, forest sustainability
