Role of bamboos in nutrient conservation during secondary succession following slash and burn agriculture jhum in northeast india



Role of bamboos in nutrient conservation during secondary succession following slash and burn agriculture jhum in northeast india



Journal of Applied Ecology 26(2): 625-634



(1) The role of bamboo species in conserving nutrients during secondary succession was studied in 5, 10 and 15-year-old 'fallow' stands after slash and burn agriculture (jhum), at three sites at 200-300 m altitude in north-eastern India. (2) Bamboos were very important during succession at all three sites, contributing 40-58% of the total slash biomass, 49-73% of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, but only 12-32% of calcium and magnesium. (3) It is concluded that bamboos play a significant role in nutrient conservation during slash and burn agriculture in north-eastern India.
