2008 journal article

Do secondary compounds inhibit microbial- and insect-mediated leaf breakdown in a tropical rainforest stream, Costa Rica?

Oecologia, 155(2), 311–323.

Contributors: M. Ardón* & C. Pringle*

author keywords: decomposition; tannins; lignin; ergosterol; fungi; bacteria; collector-gatherers
MeSH headings : Animals; Biomass; Costa Rica; Elements; Insecta; Lignin / analysis; Phenols / analysis; Plant Leaves / chemistry; Plant Leaves / microbiology; Plant Leaves / parasitology; Rivers / microbiology; Rivers / parasitology; Tannins / analysis
TL;DR: It was found that secondary compounds were rapidly leached and were less important than structural compounds in determining breakdown rates, suggesting that insects did not play an important role in breakdown. (via Semantic Scholar)

Are horses responsible for introducing non-native plants along forest trails in the eastern United States?

FOREST ECOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT, 256(5), 997–1003.

By: S. Gower*

author keywords: invasive plants; horses; trails; manure; hay; forests; disturbance
TL;DR: Horses have been suggested to be an important source for the introduction of non-native plant species along trails, but native and non- native plant species rarely become established on horse trails because of the harsh environmental conditions. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 journal article

Differences in sediment organic matter composition and PAH weathering between non-vegetated and recently vegetated fuel oiled sediments

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PHYTOREMEDIATION, 10(6), 473–485.

By: S. Gregory n & E. Nichols n

author keywords: polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH); C-14 accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS); Phragmites; cattails; willow trees
MeSH headings : Biodegradation, Environmental; Fuel Oils / analysis; Geologic Sediments / chemistry; Plant Roots; Poaceae / metabolism; Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons / chemistry; Salix / metabolism; Soil Pollutants / chemistry; Soil Pollutants / metabolism; Typhaceae / metabolism
TL;DR: Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon attenuation in contaminated field sediments after only 2 years of plant growth is examined to hypothesized that bulk sediment and humin fractions with measurable increases in plant organic matter content would show measurable changes to PAH attenuation as indicated by more weathered PAH diagnostic ratios or reduced PAH concentrations.
