Background Forage nutritive value analysis is an essential indicator of rangeland status regarding degradation and livestock nutrient demand. Thus, it is used to maintain healthy and sustainable rangelands that can provide the livestock with sufficient quantity and quality of forage. This study is conducted with the aim of investigating the effects...
Article
Full-text available
Grazing intensity (GI) is a major determining factor that controls the functioning of rangelands and the overall nutrient cycle. The Teltele rangeland is used for communal grazing area by the local pastorals; however, to date, there is no documented study data about the impact of GI. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impacts of grazin...
Article
Full-text available
A grazing enclosure (GE) is one of the most effective techniques for restoring degraded rangelands by modifying the composition, abundance, and diversity of species. However, the effect of GEs on different grazing intensities and durations compared to open-grazing (OG) rangelands is not well known. We aimed to assess the effect of GE on the charact...
Article
Full-text available
Background The gradual conversion of rangelands into other land use types is one of the main challenges affecting the sustainable management of rangelands in Teltele. This study aimed to examine the changes, drivers, trends in land use and land cover (LULC), to determine the link between the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and forage...

Full-text available
The Yabello rangeland is a semi-arid area in Borana, Ethiopia that is facing great degradation challenges. Increasing infestation of vegetation cover, over grazing and high seasonal variation have significantly affected the herbage composition and biomass in the Yabello rangeland. This study focused on assessing the effect of vegetation cover, graz...
Article
Full-text available
The infestation rate of termites in the Yabello rangeland, caused by both climatic and human factors, is of interest at certain times. This study was conducted in order to evaluate the impact of termites and determine appropriate management measures in the study area. Data was collected from three kebeles of the Yabello district (Dida Tuyura, Danba...
Article
Rehabilitating the degraded rangeland in Ethiopia is very crucial issue for improving the livelihood of pastoralist life style and the environmental sustainability of the country. In Yabello rangeland area the local communities used enclosure method in order to rehabilitate the degraded rangeland area and try to address their livelihood problems. I...
Article
Mauritania, located in the Western Sahara, is one of the least developed countries in the Sahara Desert. Its capital, Nouakchott, which is home to 23% of its population, suffers from soil erosion from the Sahara and salt-water intrusion from the Atlantic Ocean. The local environment is under pressure from the combined effects of climate and socio-e...
Conference Paper
Soil microbes in forest land are crucial to soil development and the production of available nutrients for forest trees in extreme arid areas. In this study, we used FAME and PCR-DGGE to study the effects of saline waters for drip irrigation on soil microbes in the shelter-belt along the Tarim Desert Highway in Northwest China. The main results rev...
Conference Paper
In this paper, photosynthetic organs stained with dusts on the whole plant of ten kinds of shrubs planted in Tazhong Botanical Garden, near the Tazhong Si Oilfield, in the hinterland of the Taklimkan Desert, were sampled, and their dust-retaining capabilities of photosynthetic organs were analyzed in mass subtraction method. The results showed that...
Conference Paper
Irrigation with saline water is in risk of soil salinity, which is a major threat for plant growth since salinity stored within the root zone. To determine the effects of saline irrigation on soil salinity, an experiment was carried out at the artificial shelterbelt in Taklimakan Desert Highway to examine soil salinity under different salt concentr...
Conference Paper
We explored the unique environmental conditions and management model of the Tarim Desert Highway shelter forest as well as the important roles of such shelter forest in development of the socio-economy of South Xinjiang. Experiments were conducted in the shelter forest lands drip-irrigated with underground saline water. Our results indicated that t...
