Studying altitude influence on Uludağ fir, scots pine and black pine growth and soil properties in Kastamonu


Author(s): Abduladheim Masoud Mohammed and Dr. Osama Asanousi Lamma

Abstract: Main aim of this present study was to investigate the effects of slope position on soil properties, soil organic carbon and total nitrogen content and stock capacities of Black pine (Pinus nigra) in Daday, Kastamonu. For this aim, soil samples of Black pine (Pinus nigra) were collected from two altitudes (871 m and 1189 m) on the north aspect. The soil samples were taken randomly from 0-5cm, 5-10 cm, 10-15 cm, 15-20 cm, 20-25 cm and 20-30 cm soil depths and analyzed for soil pH, soil texture, bulk density, soil macro and micro nutrient concentrations, soil organic carbon (SOC) and total nitrogen (TN) content. The SOC and TN stock capacity were then calculated by multiplying soil volume, soil bulk density, and the SOC or TN content. Among soil properties, only sand and clay content showed significant differences between altitudes (P<0.001). Soil carbon content only showed significant differences between the altitudes. However, soil total nitrogen content had a significant difference either between the altitudes or between the soil depths.
