Title : Impact of several common tree species of European temperate forests on soil fertility
Journal : Annals of Forest Science
Comment : The physical characteristics of soils also were modified depending on the overstory species, probably through modifications of the soil fauna. The rates of organic matter mineralization and nitrification seem to be dependent on tree species. The impact of a tree species on soil fertility varied depending on the type of bedrock, climate and forest management.
