Effects of high compared with low calcium intake on calcium absorption and incorporation of iron by red blood cells in small children. (1/181)BACKGROUND: The potential benefits of increasing calcium intake in small children must be balanced with the potential risk to iron utilization from high calcium intakes. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to evaluate the relation between calcium intake and calcium absorption and iron incorporation into red blood cells. DESIGN: We performed a multitracer, crossover study of the absorption of calcium and red blood cell incorporation of iron in 11 preschool children aged 3-5 y who had been adapted for 5 wk to low- (502 +/- 99 mg) and high- (1180 +/- 117 mg) calcium diets. Stable-isotope studies were performed by using 44Ca and 58Fe given orally with meals and 46Ca given intravenously. RESULTS: Iron incorporation into red blood cells 14 d postdosing was similar (6.9 +/- 4.2% compared with 7.9 +/- 5.5%; NS) with the low- and high-calcium diets, respectively. Total calcium absorption (181 +/- 50 compared with 277 +/- 91 mg/d; P = 0.002) was greater in children with the higher calcium intake. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings indicate that small children may benefit from calcium intakes similar to those recommended for older children without adverse effects on dietary iron utilization. (+info)
Characterization of prostanoid receptors in podocytes. (2/181)Prostaglandins participate in the regulation of important glomerular functions and are involved in the pathogenesis of glomerular diseases. This study investigates the influence of prostaglandins on membrane voltage, ion conductances, cAMP accumulation, and cytosolic calcium activity ([Ca2+]i) in differentiated podocytes. Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) caused a concentration-dependent depolarization and an increase of the whole cell conductance in podocytes (EC50 approximately 50 nM). Compared with PGE2, the EP2/EP3/EP4 receptor agonist 11-deoxy-PGE1 caused an equipotent depolarization, whereas the DP receptor agonist BW 245 C, the EP1/EP3 receptor agonist sulprostone, and the IP receptor agonist iloprost were at least 100 to 1000 times less potent than PGE2. The EP2 receptor agonist butaprost did not change membrane voltage of podocytes. The depolarizing effect of PGE2 was increased in an extracellular solution with a reduced Cl- concentration (from 145 to 32 mM). PGE2 and the prostaglandin agonists, but not the IP receptor agonist iloprost and the EP2 receptor agonist butaprost, induced a time- and concentration-dependent cAMP accumulation in podocytes. In fura-2 fluorescence experiments, PGE2, sulprostone, PGF2alpha, fluprostenol (a potent FP agonist), and U-46619 (a selective thromboxane A2 agonist) induced a biphasic increase of [Ca2+]i in 60 to 80% of podocytes. In reverse transcription-PCR studies, podocyte mRNA for the EP1, EP4, FP, and TP receptor could be amplified. These data indicate that in podocytes, PGE2 regulates distinct cellular functions via the EP1 and EP4 receptor, thereby increasing [Ca2+]i and cAMP, respectively. Furthermore, PGF1alpha and U-46619 increase [Ca2+]i via their specific receptors. (+info)
Calcium isotope fractionation between soft and mineralized tissues as a monitor of calcium use in vertebrates. (3/181)Calcium from bone and shell is isotopically lighter than calcium of soft tissue from the same organism and isotopically lighter than source (dietary) calcium. When measured as the (44)Ca/(40)Ca isotopic ratio, the total range of variation observed is 5.5 per thousand, and as much as 4 per thousand variation is found in a single organism. The observed intraorganismal calcium isotopic variations and the isotopic differences between tissues and diet indicate that isotopic fractionation occurs mainly as a result of mineralization. Soft tissue calcium becomes heavier or lighter than source calcium during periods when there is net gain or loss of mineral mass, respectively. These results suggest that variations of natural calcium isotope ratios in tissues may be useful for assessing the calcium and mineral balance of organisms without introducing isotopic tracers.

Isotopic evidence for variations in the marine calcium cycle over the Cenozoic. (4/181)Significant variations in the isotopic composition of marine calcium have occurred over the last 80 million years. These variations reflect deviations in the balance between inputs of calcium to the ocean from weathering and outputs due to carbonate sedimentation, processes that are important in controlling the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and, hence, global climate. The calcium isotopic ratio of paleo-seawater is an indicator of past changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide when coupled with determinations of paleo-pH. (+info)
High bioavailability of calcium in fortified Horlicks. (5/181)OBJECTIVE: To compare the bioavailability of calcium carbonate-fortified Horlicks with calcium naturally present in milk. DESIGN: Randomised crossover within-subject comparison using a double label stable isotope technique. SETTING: Institute of Food Research, Human Nutrition Unit. PARTICIPANTS: Sixteen pre-menopausal women aged 23-40 y, habituated to a high-calcium diet (mean 1240 mg/day). RESULTS: Mean true fractional calcium absorption was 38.8% (s.d.+/-14.5) from Horlicks and 21.2% (s.d.+/-4.6) from milk. Significantly more calcium was absorbed from a serving of Horlicks than from the same quantity of calcium present in 420 g semi-skimmed milk (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Fortified Horlicks is a highly bioavailable source of calcium. A single serving, containing at least 500 mg calcium, provides half the reference nutrient intake for the population sub-group with the highest requirement (adolescent boys) and more than half for all others. SPONSORSHIP: SmithKline Beecham funded this research project. (+info)
Calcium absorption measured by stable calcium isotopes ((42)Ca & (44)Ca) among Northern Chinese adolescents with low vitamin D status. (6/181)An adequate calcium intake and vitamin-D status is important for bone mineralization in adolescents. In Northern China, calcium intake and plasma vitamin-D level of adolescents is low due to low consumption of dairy foods and inadequate sunshine exposure. True fractional calcium absorption (TFCA) in Chinese adolescents has never been performed. This study aims to evaluate nutritional adaptation namely, TFCA and urinary calcium excretion among Chinese adolescents in northern China. (+info)
Overview of the 7th European symposium on calcium-binding proteins in normal and transformed cells. (7/181)The strong feature of the meeting was the continuing efforts described in many papers to resolve the multiple ways in which calcium ions are released into cells via messenger signals and then interact with receptors to cause differential internal cellular activation and cell/cell communication. An easy general way to relate these studies to cell components is to start analysis from the genetic structures lying behind all cell activities and then to explore the RNA production, the proteome, the small substrates and calcium levels themselves in turn while referring to the environment of a particular cell, organ or organism. There is then of course the overall physiology. I shall summarize the papers in this order of their main interests. (+info)
A novel dual radio- and stable-isotope method for measuring calcium absorption in humans: comparison with the whole-body radioisotope retention method. (8/181)BACKGROUND: Dietary calcium absorption can be determined only with the use of isotope techniques. Currently used isotope techniques require exclusive equipment or are not true tracer approaches. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to compare a dual-isotope method combining radioisotopes and stable isotopes with a whole-body radioisotope retention method for measuring calcium absorption. DESIGN: Seven healthy adults aged 21-27 y consumed a test meal containing 63 +/- 14 (macro x +/- SD) mg Ca together with a water solution of (47)Ca (0.11 MBq). One hour after ingestion, 18 mg (44)Ca was administered intravenously. All feces and urine were collected for 5 and 6 d, respectively. Calcium absorption was estimated from whole-body retention of the radioisotope 12 times over 3 wk after ingestion and from the excretion of (47)Ca and (44)Ca in a 24-h urine sample collected on day 2. (44)Ca in urine was determined by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. RESULTS: Mean (+/- SD) calcium absorption was 75 +/- 9% with the dual-isotope method and was 74 +/- 8% with the whole-body radioisotope retention method. There was a high degree of agreement between the methods. CONCLUSION: The dual-isotope method is a valid approach for measuring calcium absorption from a single meal. (+info)

Brachiopod shells are widely used as an archive to reconstruct elemental and isotopic composition of seawater. Studies, focused on oxygen and carbon isotopes over the last decades, are increasingly extending to the emerging calcium isotope system. To date, only little attention has been paid to test the reliability of fossil brachiopods on their modern counterparts. In this context, the present study investigates two modern brachiopods, Terebratulina septentrionalis (eastern Canada, 5-30 m depth, 7.1 °C seasonal temperature variation, two-layer shell) and Gryphus vitreus (northern Mediterranean, 200 m depth, constant all-year round temperature, three-layer shell). Both species were sampled along the ontogenetic growth direction and calcium, oxygen, and carbon isotopes as well as elemental concentration were measured. Calcium isotopes were analyzed on TIMS. The elemental composition was analyzed by LA-ICP-MS and ICP-AES. The results indicate an intra-specimen δ44/40Ca variation ranging from ...
Researchers have come one step closer to understanding unstable atomic nuclei. The protons and neutrons inside the atomic nucleus exhibit shell structures in a manner similar to electrons in an atom.
Multiple lines of evidence have shown that the isotopic composition and concentration of calcium in seawater have changed over the past 28 million years. A high-resolution, continuous seawater calcium isotope ratio curve from marine (pelagic) barite reveals distinct features in the evolution of the seawater calcium isotopic ratio suggesting changes in seawater calcium concentrations. The most pronounced increase in the ??44/40Ca value of seawater (of 0.3 per mil) occurred over roughly 4 million years following a period of low values around 13 million years ago. The major change in marine calcium corresponds to a climatic transition and global change in the carbon cycle and suggests a reorganization of the global biogeochemical system....
Abstract: Large wavelength shifts of infrared triplet lines of Ca ii have been observed in the spectra of HgMn and magnetic Ap stars. They have been attributed to the heavy calcium isotopes, including 48 Ca. One member of the triplet, Λ8542, had been either unavailable, or of poor quality in earlier spectra. The present material shows conclusively that the stellar Λ8542 shifts are consistent with an interpretation in terms of 48 Ca. We find no relation between isotopic shifts of the Ca ii triplet lines, and those of Hg iiΛ3984. There is a marginal indication that the shifts are anticorrelated with the surface field strengths of the magnetic stars. We see sparse evidence for 48 Ca in other chemically peculiar stars, for example, Am stars, metal-poor stars or chemically peculiar red giants. However, the sample is still very small, and the wavelengths of all three triplet lines, including those in the Sun, show slight positive shifts with respect to terrestrial positions.

It has been developed to describe the exceptional behaviour of the radii of calcium isotopes. The results published in "Physical Review Letters" could be a step towards a global model of the nuclear structure. The charge radius, which is the spatial expansion of the positive nuclear charge, is one of the fundamental parameters of an atomic nucleus, and leaves its traces in the optical spectrum of an atom even though this is created by the electrons in the atomic shell. The spectrum of every type of atom is as unique as a fingerprint, and can be measured precisely using laser light. This provides information on the size and properties of the atomic nucleus. The technique is also suitable for very short-lived nuclei which decay within a blink of an eye. Laser spectroscopy measurements on a long chain ...
mothra, extra knight, please! All this acrimony puzzles me, because, as I said earlier, I really am on your side here, and I am trying to help. And I am not calling you names, am I? Thats a waste of time…and we may not have much time to waste.. I actually think, if we can get past the rhetoric, that we are on the same page here. There is a lot we can agree on I think:. 1. Radiation causes biological harm, and for a given tissue type, the level of that harm is as far as we know proportional to the total amount of radiation energy absorbed by that tissue over time. 2. There is a lot of radioactive material coming from Fukushima, on par with Chernobyl, and maybe for a long time to come, or if the worst happens, in another explosive event. So far, though, a great deal of the release has been into the ocean, though there are continuing releases into the atmosphere. We are being kept in the dark by the Japanese authorities both deliberately and by ineptitude. We need to mount a stronger campaign of ...

The COMparison of CALcium Bioavailability Between AlgaeCal® and a Proprietary Supplement - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
In a crossover, single blind, randomized trial the calcium bioavailability of two calcium supplements will be compared.That is AlgaeCal®(Algaecal Inc, Vancouver, Canada)(1 dose is 3 capsules of 180 mg calcium), derived from ocean algae and the proprietary calcium supplement Caltrate 600® (Wyeth Consumer Healthcare, Inc).. After a screening visits 20 healthy male subjects aged 20-50 years will spend a day at the research center to examine calcium bioavailability data. They will be randomized to consume either first the AlgaeCal® supplement or the Caltrate 600® supplement. After a one week wash-out period subjects will be supplemented with the other supplement. During the examination day blood and urine samples will be collected before and until eight hours after the supplementation for analyses of calcium, creatinine, phosphorus, albumin and 25 Hydroxy vitamin D. Subjects are instructed to avoid taking calcium and/or vitamin D supplements 1 week before and during the entire study period. In ...
This study will enroll at least 60 pregnant women in a randomized cross-over study in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Each participant will be randomized to one of 3 calcium doses: 500 mg, 1000 mg, 1500 mg elemental Ca per day. Each participant will undergo two calcium absorption tests, one with a micronutrient supplement powder containing non-encapsulated (non-coated) calcium and the other with a micronutrient supplement powder containing encapsulated calcium at the same dose. The absorption tests will be separated by a 2-week washout period. Fractional calcium absorption will be measured using the dual stable isotope method. For each test, the formulation will be administered orally for 9 days; on the 10th day, a 44Ca- labeled stable isotope will be given orally and a 42Ca-labeled stable isotope dose will be given intravenously. Urine will be collected for 48 hours to measure calcium absorption ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Secretion and excretion of calcium by the human gastrointestinal tract. AU - Heaney, Robert P.. AU - Skillman, Thomas G.. PY - 1964/7/1. Y1 - 1964/7/1. N2 - Fecal excretion of calcium of endogenous origin has been measured in 52 studies in 33 adult human subjects, under full metabolic balance conditions. Endogenous fecal calcium averaged .130 ± .047 Gm. per day, was positively correlated with both fecal calcium and dietary calcium and was inversely correlated with fractional calcium absorption. The regression line relating endogenous fecal calcium with fractional absorption allowed estimates for total intestinal calcium secretion at both zero and 100 per cent absorption; from these estimates it was calculated that approximately 15 per cent of the total intestinal calcium secretion was nonabsorbable even under conditions when dietary calcium was completely absorbed (presumably because it enters the gut caudad of the absorption sites). Total intestinal calcium secretion, ...

Mice injected with the bone-seeking isotope, 89Sr, were depleted of marrow erythropoietic progenitor cells but maintained normal or near-normal numbers of splenic erythropoietic progenitor cells, lymphoid tissue alloantigen-sensitive units responsible for graft-vs-host reactions, and splenic antigen-sensitive units responsive to sheep erythrocytes which give rise to antibody-producing cells. The ability of such mice to reject marrow allografts was suppressed. It is concluded that a separate class of marrow-dependent immunocompetent cells exist, now called "M cells," which are responsible for rejection of allogeneic dispersed hemopoietic cells.. ...

High-throughput screening of a library of compounds using an ATP-evoked calcium uptake assay in a stable hP2X4-HEK293 cell line allowed us to identify BX430, a phenylurea endowed with potent (IC50 = 0.54 µM) and selective antagonist properties on recombinant as well as native human P2X4 receptor channels.. Confirming the high calcium permeability of human P2X4 channels reflected by a fractional calcium current close to 15% (Egan and Khakh, 2004), ATP-evoked calcium responses were robust and reproducible, with only a minor contribution by endogenous P2Y receptors in this hP2X4-HEK293 cell line. Therefore, the sensitive screening method described here has the potential to identify novel lead compounds that block P2X4 receptor channels. Moreover, with simple adjustments of the recording parameters, such a calcium-based cellular assay can also be used to screen for positive allosteric modulators of P2X4 function (see Fig. 1B). The blocker BX430, which was selected among other inhibitory lead ...

Nutrients | Free Full-Text | Calcium Absorption in Infants and Small Children: Methods of Determination and Recent Findings
Determining calcium bioavailability is important in establishing dietary calcium requirements. In infants and small children, previously conducted mass balance studies have largely been replaced by stable isotope-based studies. The ability to assess calcium absorption using a relatively short 24-hour urine collection without the need for multiple blood samples or fecal collections is a major advantage to this technique. The results of these studies have demonstrated relatively small differences in calcium absorption efficiency between human milk and currently available cow milk-based infant formulas. In older children with a calcium intake typical of Western diets, calcium absorption is adequate to meet bone mineral accretion requirements.

An Ancestral Perspective on Vitamin D Status, Part 2: Why Low 25(OH)D Could Indicate a Deficiency of Calcium Instead of Vitamin...
Although randomized controlled trials have thus far not provided the definitive evidence that low calcium intake is a cause of low 25(OH)D in humans, this is far more likely to be because no trials have adequately addressed the question than because the interaction does not exist. Experimental evidence in rats has demonstrated the interaction beyond doubt, and the physiology - which very clearly implies the interaction - appears to be, for all relevant intents and purposes, identical between humans and rats. It is thus extremely unlikely in my opinion that low calcium intake is not a cause of low 25(OH)D in humans.. The practical implications are two-fold. First, we are in desperate need of clinical trials to address this question adequately. In the mean time, if someone has low 25(OH)D, they should assess their calcium intake.. Obtaining a birds-eye view of ones calcium intake is relatively easy to do without the help of a professional, any fancy software, or even an internet database. Most ...

Systemic Radiation Therapy Using radioactive isotopes to treat certain cancers is called systemic radiation therapy. The radioactive isotopes may be swallowed, given intravenously or injected into the body. For example, radioactive iodine (I-131) capsules are given to patients to treat some types of thyroid cancer. Another example is the use of intravenous radioactive strontium to treat pain due to cancer that has spread to the bone. Radioimmunotherapy Recent research has focused on the use of radioactive monoclonal antibodies, also called radiolabeled antibodies, to deliver doses of radiation directly to a tumor. This process is known as radioimmunotherapy. Antibodies are made by the body in response to the presence of antigens (substances recognized as foreign by the immune system). Large quantities of particular types of antibodies, called monoclonal antibodies, can be made in the laboratory. These monoclonal antibodies can be attached to radioactive isotopes in a process called ...
Experienced eaters and chefs alike know that corn tortilla soup traditionally has a thin, spicy broth. If you prefer a thicker soup (not just chunky) with more of a stew or chowder like consistency, any number of thickening methods can be employed without changing the delicious flavor. Corn starch, roux, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, and potato starch can all be used safely with good results. Tortilla soup can also be reduced down through slow cooking if you hesitate to add additional carbohydrates.. ...

As an essential nutrient, we know that optimum growth cannot be achieved without an adequate supply of magnesium. As the central atom in chlorophyll, magnesium is crucial for efficient photosynthesis and therefore low levels in the leaf will have a direct impact on yield. It is also required for the production of starch and sugars, their movement in the plant and for seed fill. In addition to these functions, magnesium, by stabilising cell membranes and regulating calcium movement, helps reduce plant susceptibility to disease.. ...

In Fig. 4 A, peak Δ[CaT] in response to one AP in a slow-twitch fiber is 107 µM, which is achieved with a peak SR Ca2+ flux of 57 µM/ms and a flux FDHM of 1.7 ms (see also Fig. 2 C); the corresponding values for a fast-twitch fiber are 349 µM, 205 µM/ms, and 1.6 ms (see also Fig. 2 D). The modeled spatially averaged Δ[Ca2+] in slow-twitch fibers has a peak amplitude of 7.6 µM and an FDHM of 4.9 ms. As expected from Fig. 2, the corresponding values in fast-twitch fibers are larger and briefer, 16.1 µM and 3.7 ms. These properties of spatially averaged Δ[Ca2+] obtained with the multi-compartment models are thought to be more accurate than those obtained above with the single-compartment analysis (Fig. 2, A and B). The multi-compartment estimates of the FDHM of Δ[Ca2+] are substantially briefer: 4.9 versus 8 ms for slow-twitch fibers and 3.7 versus 5 ms for fast-twitch fibers. In both fiber types, peak Δ[Ca2+] is a small fraction of peak Δ[CaT] (,0.1); i.e., the great majority of the ...

Hi all, Id like to make a quick and dirty test for changes in sensitivity on growth factor stimulation. Quick and dirty means that I want to load the cells with FURA2, put them into a fluorimeter cuvette, add growth factor and see what happens to calcium efflux. (At the moment, I dont have the equipment for higher sophsticated experiments like a confocal microscope etc.) The crucial point is the my cells actually are adherent 3T3 mouse fibroblasts and need to be transfected. My plan was: 1) transfect cells 2) grow cells for another 24h 3) detach cells by a short trypsination and mechanical force, count cell number 4) keep cells in suspension for 4 hours (agitate in the incubator, either constantly or by swirling every five minutes) 5) load aliquot with FURA2, place into cuvette, stimulate All I want to see is if the transfected plasmid (and expressed protein, of course) affects the ability of the cell to produce calcium efflux (duration / mean intensity / recovery time) or not. Will the 4h ...

The Linus Pauling Institute published a study summary in their newsletter in the fall of 2006 illustrating the capacity of chlorophyll to detoxify carcinogenic environmental toxins. "Scientists in our laboratory have studied the chemoprotective effects of chlorophyllin and have recently discovered that natural chlorophyll itself is a potent anticancer agent." (3). Chlorella is another substance that has been studied extensively in Japan and has demonstrated unique ability to detoxify heavy metals. The fermented soy paste called miso (used in the popular miso soup) was also studied in Japan and was discovered to bind and detoxify radioactive elements. (1). ALGIN. Canadian researchers from McGill University, as far back as 1968, have shown that a fiber component of seaweeds called alginate (or algin) helped detoxify radioactive strontium.

The answer will be different biochemically speaking for different people, different metabolic types and different imbalances. But as a general rule, bone fractures are related to calcium metabolism inefficiency, specifically as pertains to mineral balance and pH. Good calcium metabolism requires: sufficient calcium levels, sufficient calcium metabolism synergistic factors (primarily magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin C , E and B6), sufficient sympathetic strength/tone and sufficient pH acidity (an over-alkaline pH will cause calcium to precipitate out of solution and be deposited.). So good calcium metabolism requires sufficient levels of calcium, but beyond the quantitative presence of calcium, the availability of synergistic factors must also be present for proper qualitative calcium utilization. Any one or all of the above factors can be involved. The proper Metabolic Typing interpretation of a hair tissue mineral analysis can be useful in targeting the causal factors. With different ...
0002]A level of calcium within the living body is constantly maintained by balancing between absorption and excretion from the gastrointestinal tract, and renal tubular reabsorption and excretion, respectively. Consequently, calcium deficiency is one of the symptoms of chronic renal failure. Also, calcium deficiency is often found since it is not easy to find various foods containing a lot of calcium, and an efficiency of the absorption is not sufficient in many cases. Calcium deficiency is responsible for brittle bones and may cause osteoporosis and osteomalacia, and thus it is hoped to establish a method for improving an efficiency of the calcium absorption from the small intestine and/or bone absorption of calcium ...

Resolution of intracellular calcium metabolism in intact segments of rabbit aorta. | Circulation Research
A new method, based on computer-assisted kinetic analysis of 45Ca efflux data, was used to measure calcium contents and fluxes for extracellular and intracellular compartments in intact segments of rabbit aorta. After a 1-hour loading period, efflux data were collected for 8 hours using a flow-through tissue chamber. These long-term effluxes were necessary because information on intracellular calcium metabolism was concentrated in the slow components of the efflux curves while earlier components appeared to be dominated by washout of extracellular calcium. Intracellular compartments were identified as those whose calcium contents were altered by 10 microM phenylephrine. This method complements previous approaches by providing simultaneous estimates of compartmental calcium contents and fluxes without requiring the assumption of isotopic equilibrium and without recourse to standard wash techniques for removal of extracellular calcium. In normal, calcium-containing, bicarbonate-buffered ...

WHY WE NEED CALCIUM. By Troy Francis. Calcium is one nutrient that is sometimes overlooked. However, it is one of the most important nutrients your body needs. Calcium plays an important part in body functions and some development. Knowing how much calcium you need daily and where to get it from can ensure that you will lead a healthier life and live longer. What does Calcium do for us! Well, calcium does many things for your body. Everyone knows calcium is great for the bones. It also plays a role in keeping your muscles and nerves working properly. It also helps blood clot and keeps your heart functioning properly. Lacking calcium in your diet can greatly affect your health for years to come. When your body does not get enough calcium it begins to take calcium from the bones. When this occurs, the bones become deficient and problems can start such as osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease that mostly affects older people. Osteoporosis is a disease where the bones get thin and brittle. However ...
It is well established that many peoples diets are deficient in the two essential bone-making nutrients, calcium and magnesium, and that low calcium intakes can contibute to osteoporosis.

Assessment of soil quality using soil organic carbon and total nitrogen and microbial properties in tropical agroecosystems
Assessment of soil quality is an invaluable tool in determining the sustainability and environmental impact of agricultural ecosystems. The study was conducted to assess the quality of the soils under arable cultivation, locally irri-gated and non-irrigated, forestry plantations of teak (Tectona grandis Lin.) and gmelina (Gme- lina arborea Roxb.), and cashew (Anacardium occidentale Lin.) plantation agro ecosystems using soil organic carbon (SOC), soil total ni-trogen (STN) and soil microbial biomass C (SMBC) and N (SMBN) at Minna in the southern Guinea savanna of Nigeria. Soil samples were collected from soil depths of 0-5 cm and 5-10 cm in all the agro ecosystems and analyzed for physical, chemical and biological properties. All the agro ecosystems had similar loamy soil texture at both depths. The soils have high fer-tility status in terms of available phosphorus and exchangeable calcium, magnesium and po- tassium. The irrigated arable land had significantly (P | 0.05) higher SOC and STN in both soil
