Parent material and climate affect soil organic carbon fractions under pastures in south-eastern Australia

Orgill, Susan; Condon, Jason; Conyers, Mark; Morris, Stephen G.; Murphy, Brian W.; Greene, Richard


In the present field survey, 72 sites were sampled to assess the effect of climate (Monaro, Boorowa and Coleambally regions) and parent material (Monaro region only; basalt and granite) on soil organic carbon (OC) under perennial pastures. In the higher-rainfall zone (Monaro and Boorowa; >500 mm mean annual rainfall), OC stocks under introduced and native perennial pastures were compared, whereas in the lower-rainfall zone (Coleambally; <500 mm mean annual rainfall) OC stocks under crops and...[Show more]
