Water and nutrient fluxes as indicators for the stability of different land use systems on the Terra firme near Manaus SHIFT project ENV 45. Final report

Little is known about the stability of mixed perennial cropping systems in the central Amazon. Therefore, water and nutrient fluxes were studied in different mono- and polycultures to elucidate the feasibility of recultivating abandoned and degraded areas. Single-tree effects on ecological important parameters were monitored and yielded valuable data about the functioning of the investigated systems. Large amounts of nitrogen were leached into the subsoil. The combination of trees with different properties may help to utilize nutrients and water more efficiently than monocultures.
