Pulina, Antonio (2017) Soil Greenhouse Gases emissions in Mediterranean forage systems. Doctoral Thesis.
Many studies on the impacts of soil management on Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions were carried
out in the last years. However, field studies on GHG emissions in forage systems under semi-arid
Mediterranean conditions are still limited. Modelling approaches are required for predicting the long
term performances of Mediterranean grasslands under different environmental and management
strategies, but so far very few attempts were made for these environments. The overall aim of the
PhD dissertation was to analyse the processes and the management options that influence the soil C
cycle and GHG emissions in two typologies of Mediterranean forage systems: extensively managed
pastures and irrigated maize-based systems. Field experiments were carried out for both forage
systems, while a modelling approach was undertaken only for the pastures.
