Sample text

Thus, a wide variety of cationic plant essential elements (Cu2+, Fe2+, Mg2+, Mn2+, K+, Zn2+, and Mo2+) and metals (Al3+, Cd2+, Cr3+, and Pb2+) are sorbed to humus. The sorption of polyvalent cations is especially important as these can serve as bridges between negatively charged electrostatic clays. As these particles are joined together by cationic bridging, submicroaggregates of individual particles begin to form. Submicroaggregates grow and combine into microaggregates, where the foundations of soil structure start to emerge.

In France larger than one commune, but less than a district). The objective is to create a common place which is built by stakeholder strategies to valorise local resources in connection with the global society (Conseil Général du GREF 1999). Territorial development means in particular that development has to use a global approach in considering that the relations between the different sectors and the different stakeholders should be encouraged and reinforced to achieve synergies among them. From an agroecological perspective, the territorial development approach means that relations outside of agriculture, but which interfere with it, have to be taken into account.

All of these concepts have their pros and cons depending on the objectives and the areas where they are intended to be implemented. The concept of combining is a major challenge for many actual agroecological research projects working at the plot scale. Topics vary for example from (i) adaptive fertilization and mowing practices which allow plant species diversity to increase in pastures and meadows, (ii) to maintaining rare and endangered plant species, or (iii) to preserving habitats for certain nesting bird species.
