Linking the Land to the Sea Relationships: Building agricultural productive capacity, reducing pollution and restoring crucial nutrients for ecosystem recovery

Conference Proceeding

Historically we have understood the water cycle as the process of rain falling to the land and with water coalescing to streams and rivers and running back to the ocean with evapo- transpiration occurring all the time, but mostly at the ocean level with the water returning to the sky to begin the process all over.

The effect of coastal soil salinity on permanent vegetation line

Conference Proceeding

Permanent vegetation line (PVL) is considered as the first line of natural vegetation where plant forms are established. Soil salinity is one of the major factors that determine the distribution of the vegetation in the coast. A study was conducted to find out the changes of the PVL with the soil-salinity changes in the Eastern coast of Batticaloa, Sri Lanka.
