The former was dominated by a broad peak, which is consistent with P bound by phosphomonoester linkages of supra-/macro-molecular structures, whereas the latter contained all of the sharp peaks that were present in unfractionated extracts, along with some broad signal. Overall, phosphomonoesters in supra-/macro-molecular structures were found to account for the majority (61% to 73%) of soil organic P across the five diverse soils. These soil phosphomonoesters will need to be integrated within current models of the inorganic-organic P cycle of soil-plant terrestrial ecosystems.]]> Wed 07 Dec 2016 10:35:24 EST ]]> The bush coconut (scale insect gall) as food at Kiwirrkurra, Western Australia Wed 07 Dec 2016 10:28:25 EST ]]> Population estimation of the parasitic herb 'Thesium australe' (Santalaceae) in Booroolong Nature Reserve, Northern Tablelands, NSW Wed 07 Dec 2016 10:21:24 EST ]]> How does a cotton production system change the soil biology?

We then used the partitioning around medoids cluster analysis method for grouping wetlands based on 12 climate, topography, geology and soils spatial data layers and the wetland locations. We tested a range of cluster numbers from three to 20, and assessed the stability of the clustering by calculating mean silhouette widths. The derived classes were then characterized in terms of number of individual wetlands and their area, and also the number and area of individual wetlands found within protected areas such as national parks. Results: We found a peak in the mean silhouette width at 11 clusters, indicating that this was the optimal number of clusters for classifying the wetland data. We produced maps of wetland density for each of the 11 clusters and described the mean and mode environmental characteristics of each cluster. Each cluster represented a unique combination of environmental variables. For example, wetlands in cluster 2 are typically in the south, in areas of low evaporation and low average temperatures. An assessment of rarity found that wetlands in the largest cluster class had an areal extent of 14 644 ha, compared to 1414 ha for the smallest cluster. All but one of the clusters had part of their range within protected areas. Conclusions: Clustering environmental variables is an important but underutilized method for characterizing vegetation communities/ecoregions such as wetlands spatially. This approach can be used to produce objective, repeatable and defensible wetland community maps for assessing rarity.]]> Wed 07 Dec 2016 10:14:24 EST ]]> 'You are just an idiot for not doing any physical activity right now': Pre-service Health and Physical Education teachers' constructions of fatness Wed 07 Dec 2016 10:00:28 EST ]]> Antennal Asymmetry in Social Behavior of the Australian Stingless Bee, 'Tetragonula carbonaria' Wed 07 Dec 2016 09:53:24 EST ]]> Ecological restoration of rural landscapes: stewardship, governance and fairness Wed 07 Dec 2016 09:46:25 EST ]]> Diet of mala ('Lagorchestes hirsutus') at Ulu-r̲u-Kata Tju-t̲a National Park and comparison with that of historic free-ranging mala in the Tanami Desert: Implications for management and future reintroductions Wed 07 Dec 2016 09:39:24 EST ]]> Can camera trapping be used to accurately survey and monitor the Hastings River mouse ('Pseudomys oralis')?

These land-use effects were largely restricted to the near surface soil layers. Improved pasture was associated with a significant soil acidification, indicating that strategies to increase soil carbon through pasture improvement in these environments might also have associated soil degradation issues. Total soil carbon stocks were significantly larger in woodland soils, across all soil types, compared with the other land-uses studied. Non-wooded systems, however, had statistically similar carbon stocks and this pattern persisted whether or not carbon quantity was corrected for equivalent mass. Our results suggest that conversion from cultivation to pasture in this environment would yield between 0.06 and 0.15 t C/ha/yr which is at the lower end of predicted ranges in Australia and well below values measured in other cooler, wetter environments. We estimate that a 10% conversion rate (cultivation to pasture) across NSW would yield around 0.36 Mt CO₂-e/yr which would contribute little to emission reductions in NSW. We conclude that carbon accumulation in agricultural soils in this environment might be more modest than current predictions suggest and that systematically collected, regionally specific data are required for the vegetation communities and full range of land-uses before accurate and reliable predictions of soil carbon change can be made across these extensive landscapes.]]> Thu 08 Dec 2016 14:14:27 EST ]]> Comparative study of soil properties under various cultivation regimes of different crops Thu 08 Dec 2016 14:07:24 EST ]]> Genomic Footprints in Selected and Unselected Beef Cattle Breeds in Korea T, Ala199Val) and predicted the mutational effect on the protein structure.

Meat tenderness has been linked to intramuscular fat content, which is one of the main breeding goals for brown Hanwoo, potentially supporting a causal influence of the herein described nsSNP in the APP gene.]]> Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:51:24 EST ]]> Characterization and profiling of liver microRNAs by RNA-sequencing in cattle divergently selected for residual feed intake Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:44:25 EST ]]> Introducing the IAVS Vegetation Classification Working Group Thu 08 Dec 2016 10:37:24 EST ]]> Reliability of map accuracy assessments: A reply to Roff et al.
