Jonathan Cumming has always been interested in plants and the way they grow.

This study performed on randomly selected seven sample plots in leguminous black locust (Robinia pceudoacacia L.) plantations and five sample plots in umbrella pine (Pinus pinea L.) plantations on coal mine soil/spoils. Soil samples were taken from eight different soil depths (0–1, 1–3, 3–5, 5–10, 10–20, 20–30, 30–40, and 40–50 cm) into the soil by:   There is renewed interest in re-establishing trees on million ha of mining-disturbed lands in the Appalachian mountains of Eastern United States.

Many coal-mined lands reclaimed to meet requirements of US federal law have thick herbaceous vegetation and compacted soils which impede tree establishment.

Mitigation practices were applied on three mine sites and evaluated for success in Cited by: Through three major themes, it examines characterization of mine site spoils; remediation of chemical, physical and biological constraints of mine site spoils, including post mine-site land-use practices; and revegetation of remediated mine site spoils.

Each theme includes chapters featuring case studies involving mine sites around the world.5/5(1). 20 Vegetation Growth on Completed Reclamation Projects 21 Researching Tomorrow’s Reclamation Today 24 Enhancing Wildlife Habitat and Biodiversity 25 The Bigger Picture – Sustainable Development The reclaimed Galena stockpile in Bisbee, Arizona, reflecting new vegetation growth in Cover photo: Reclaimed land in Colorado at the historicFile Size: 4MB.

How a mine site evolves following closure of mines varies according to location and local requirements. In the European Union (EU), of the mined lands that have been reclaimed, over 50% are reclaimed as forests or grasslands whereas in China, more than 70% are reclaimed for agricultural purposes.

Native grasses have evolved with Missouri’s volatile weather conditions, enabling them to survive cold, saturated soils in winter, and hot, dry soils in summer.

The main objective of the study was to analyse lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Engelm.) growth in relation to soil nutrients in a reclaimed oil shale mining area (ROSMA), abandoned agricultural land (AAL) and forestland (FL).

CHAPTER 6 CONCLUSION AND SUMMARY Although mineral production is essential for growth of a nation, however, mining is not the ultimate land use. In India, which is a mineral rich country due to its geological position, in most of the cases mineral wealth are juxtaposed with the forest resources and the dwelling areas of highlanders.

Coenological studies of the herb-layer vegetation in abandoned open-pit bauxite mines reclaimed with Austrian pine (Pinus nigra) were executed in Gerecse Mts. (Nagyegyháza) and Bakony Mts.
