Volcanic oceanic islands host soils that may hold important paleo-environmental proxies, based on vegetation and faunal evidences coupled with pedological and geomorphological indicators. In this regard, the main Brazilian oceanic island of Fernando de Noronha (FNI) still lacks a deeper and more complete analysis of its climatic history and soil ev...

... The type of soil could also influence the enrichment from avian material because guano deposited on the rocks loses more of its nitrogen by volatilization than when deposited on sediments or vegetation (Lindeboom 1984;Blackall et al. 2008). In addition, the presence of historical depositions, such as ornithogenic soils (Oliveira et al. 2014;Silveira et al. 2020), could make nitrogen and phosphorous available to the terrestrial food web even during seasons and years with no or limited breeding activity. Finally, areas free of nutrient-carrying animals (e.g. ...
