Effect of coal mining on vegetation disturbance and ...

2014-8-24 · Vegetation is an important part of the environment but may be subjected to disturbance in areas close to coal mines. This results in a slowing of the rate of biomass growth, which is caused by fading of vegetation. Simultaneously, carbon stored in vegetation is constantly released, weakening vegetation ability to act as a carbon sink. Indirect release of carbon during coal mining processes is ...

Groundwater controls on vegetation composition and ...

2011-9-24 · 1. Introduction [2] Many mountain ranges, such as those of the American Cordillera, are characterized by wet winters and dry summers, which lead to ecosystems that depend on snowmelt and groundwater to provide moisture through the growing season. Riparian meadows in this environment are groundwater-dependent ecosystems [Allen-Diaz, 1991].Water table depth is a primary determinant of vegetation ...
