Thermal refugia in cleared temperate Australian woodlands: Coarse woody debris moderate extreme surface soil temperatures

Goldin, Sarah; Hutchinson, Michael


Extensive tree clearing and agriculture has exposed surface soils of former Australian temperate woodlands to more extreme temperature fluctuations. Given the highly variable climate in these regions, and increasing temperature overall, amelioration of extreme surface soil temperatures would have implications for soil-dependent biological activity. Reintroduction of coarse woody debris (CWD) to these woodlands may moderate surface soil temperatures. Diurnal surface soil temperatures at a depth...[Show more]
