ABSTRACT The implementation of conservationist systems that improve soil properties and reduce the impacts of the conversion of native areas is fundamental for feasible agricultural exploitation. This study aimed to evaluate the impact on soil biological properties caused by the conversion of murundus fields into agricultural systems and verify the ability of the no-tillage conservation system to recover these properties over the years. Treatments consisted of three agricultural areas subjected to the same management (no-tillage), in a chronosequence (7, 11, […]

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in “murundu fields” after conversion to farm systems in the cerrado

Paula Camylla Ramos Assis, Orivaldo José Saggin Júnior, Helder Barbosa Paulino, Sidney Luiz Stürmer, José Oswaldo Siqueira, Marco Aurélio Carbone Carneiro


The murundu fields (Campos de Murundus) are characterized by mounds occurring in some parts of the Cerrado (Brazilian tropical savanna) biome with important ecological functions for the maintenance of soil sustainability. Conversion to agricultural systems may lead to changes in physical, chemical, and biological soil properties not yet assessed, such as reduction in the biodiversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. The aim of this study was to evaluate how the conversion of mound fields into agricultural areas changes the community of […]

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in an oxisol under managements and uses in cerrado

Dorotéia Alves Ferreira, Marco Aurélio Carbone Carneiro, Orivaldo José Saggin Junior


The alterations in the communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) induced by changes in land use and different agricultural uses are still insufficiently studied, particularly in the Cerrado biome. This study evaluated how human interference by management and land use change affect the AMF density and diversity in a Cerrado Oxisol. The study evaluated five areas: Riparian Forest (MC), Riparian Forest Edge (BM), Pasture (Past), no-till monoculture (PD) and Riparian Deforested Area (AD). In each area, 20 plots of 250 […]
