Article
Oxalate‐carbonate pathway (OCP) allows atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2atm) sequestration through deposition of CaCO3 in soils. The participation of Brosimum alicastrum in the OCP has been demonstrated in traditional Maya agroforesty systems (homegardens) in Yucatan, Mexico, but remains unstudied in wild vegetation. To compare the OCP role of B. ali...

Background. The Milpa is one of the traditional agricultural systems of Yucatan, Mexico; it is implemented by using the agricultural procedure called "Slash & Burn". Quality and quantity of forest fuel (i.e. biomass) are two of the main factors related to burn severity. Burning affects soil properties related to fertility and crop production. The u...

Background. In recent decades there has been an increase in emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, this has caused negative impacts on both natural and anthropic systems. Due to the above, the study of the global dynamics of the carbon cycle has become more important, in order to design technologies and propose management strategies...
Article
El karst del estado de Yucatán, México, tiene su origen en los arrecifes coralinos y sedimentos marinos que, al exponerse a la superficie, formaron la roca caliza. Los procesos de solubilización-precipitación de esta roca han promovido la ausencia de corrientes de agua superficiales, un relieve ligeramente ondulado con planicies, depresiones y mont...

Discharge of detergent-containing wastewater (greywater) into soils is common in rural areas in Yucatan, Mexico since the majority of soils are shallow and bedrock makes the building of drainage systems a challenge. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of greywater discharges on shallow soil properties. Physical and chemical properties...

Drought is one of the most difficult natural phenomena to study because there is not yet a clear enough definition nor the technical resources to predict it. However, it is a problem that has increased worldwide in recent decades, perhaps influenced by climate change. In Mexico, drought affects more people than any other natural contingency, so it...

Water stress caused by water deficit limits the proper functioning of a plant due to low water availability. In natural systems, stress by water deficit can be the result of low rainfall, low water retention capacity of the soil, excessive salinity, extreme hot or cold temperatures, low atmospheric pressure steam or a combination of these factors....
