Characteristics of Coral Cay Soils at Coringa-Herald Coral Sea Islands, Australia

George N. Batianoff, Gillian C. Naylor, Rod J. Fensham, V. John Neldner
2010 Pacific Science  
Coral cay soil chemical and physical properties were described from Coringa-Herald National Nature Reserve, Australia. Soil A horizons under littoral herblands and Argusia argentea shrubs were shallow and coarse textured. Interior soil A horizons, particularly under Pisonia grandis closed forest, were deeper (1.2 m) with finer textures. Average surface soil pH values ranged from pH 8.76 at the seashores to pH 8.09 in the interior. Average surface soil organic carbon ranged from 2.4% to 4.8%;
more » ... phosphorus (Colwell-P) concentrations ranged from 467 mg/kg to 882 mg/kg within the interior areas. Chemical fertility of all A horizons increased from the seashore to the island interior. The higher fertility levels are attributed to high organic matter contributed by vegetation, combined with activities of seabirds, particularly the burrowing wedgetailed shearwater, Puffinis pacificus. Leaching of nutrients from surface soils is reflected in the rapid decline in soil fertility with depth. Deeper interior A horizons are interrupted by formation of an abrupt white C profile. It is speculated that the formation of this layer is the product of periodic "washing" by a seasonally high fresh/brackish water table.

Oases to Oblivion: The Rapid Demise of Springs in the South-Eastern Great Artesian Basin, Australia

2013 Ground Water  
The position and status of lost springs have been reconstructed in some regions (Fairfax and Fensham 2002; Fensham and Fairfax 2003; Pickard 1992 ) but these studies do not reveal their cultural significance  ...  While the exploitation of groundwater and loss of springs, together with their natural resource and cultural values, has been repeated across the continents from Australia (Fairfax and Fensham 2002) ,  ...

Agricultural legacy, climate, and soil influence the restoration and carbon potential of woody regrowth in Australia

John M. Dwyer, Rod J. Fensham, Yvonne M. Buckley
2010 Ecological Applications  
When assessing canopy cover, the tree crown area was taken as the area within the minimum convex polygon around the outer living and dead branches of the tree (following Fensham and Fairfax 2007) .  ...  So, if we want to seize opportunities to restore regrowth via carbon investment (Fensham and Guymer 2009) it is important to choose regrowth ecosystems for which carbon and restoration goals can be aligned  ...
