Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Measurements of water content, ignition loss, nitrogen, pH, total exchangeable bases, exchangeable hydrogen and depth of mor humus layer were made on the surface soils of a western Irish mixed oakwood. One hundred vegetation quadrats were also recorded. Comparisons with other data suggest that both soils and vegetation are generally intermediate in character between the richest and poorest types of oakwood and mixed oakwood in Britain.
