A total of water (n=) and soil (n=30) samples were collected from 12 selected sites in 3 different states (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Johor) in Peninsular Malaysia. One hundred and twenty-one water samples were collected from lakes, swamps and effluent drain waters, while 30 soil samples were collected from roadsides near housing areas. Depth and physical properties of soil in a forest and a rubber plantation in Peninsular Malaysia. Soil depth and soil physical properties were investigated in a tropical rain forest and a rubber plantation in Peninsular Malaysia. For the forested site, thickness of surface soil layer (A and B horizons) and total soil depth ranged.

Data from two trials on coastal clay soils of Peninsular Malaysia showed that reduction in the density of an established coconut (Cocos nucifera) stand affected the performance of both the coconuts and the underplanted cocoa (Theobroma cacao). Yield responses in both crops were evident by about one year after thinning. Manuring influenced the thinning effects on both crops.

MATERIALS AND METHODS. Field investigation: For laboratory investigation, peat soil was sampled from the Klang, Peninsular, West Malaysia. This research was conducted from November, to February, Trial pits were excavated to a depth of 1 m below the ground surface to measure ground water table and to obtain both undisturbed and disturbed soil samples below the ground water table.

Book Description There are approximately different soil varieties in Malaysia, most is residual soil and coastal alluvial soil. This book presents a comprehensive overview of various aspects of soils in Malaysia. Soil is a mixture of minerals, organic matter, gases, liquids, and some microorganisms.

This chapter encompasses the major soil types in Malaysia and their classification. Generally, there are three main soil groups in Malaysia: residual soils of granite, residual soils of sedimentary rock, and coastal alluvial : Aminaton Marto, Safiah Yusmah Mohd Yusoff.

Hence, spodic horizon is brought down to a lower depth compared to that of Rhu Tapai soil; in this soil spodic horizon occurs at 50– cm depth. This more leached soil in comparison to Rhu Tapai is called Rudua Series (Spodosol). Rudua Series is the most extensive among the BRIS Soils in Peninsular Malaysia (Soo,Lim, ).Cited by:   Soil and leachate characterization identified the level of pollutants in the landfill environment.

Hence, microbial isolation and identification generated the microbial diversity of the contaminated landfill peninsular Malaysia book of Peninsular Malaysia. Exposure to Hg concentrations (5–20 ppm) showed that all the organisms survived with a heavy growth by: Soils under Hevea in Peninsular Malaysia and their management.

This book, primarily meant for local needs, may also be of great value for other regions in the. Peninsular Malaysia's population density is low compared to that of most developing countries.

Intotal land per capita was ha, agricultural land in use was ha per capita, and forest area was ha per capita (Ibu Pejabat Perhutanan, Semenanjung Malaysia, ; Ministry of Agriculture [Malaysia], ).

Land. Peninsular Malaysia occupies most of the southern segment of the Malay the north it is bordered by Thailand, with which it shares a land boundary of some miles ( km).To the south, at the tip of the peninsula, is the island republic of Singapore, with which Malaysia is connected by a causeway and also by a separate the southwest, across the.

Early experiences indicated that oil palms grown on shallow lateritic soils came into bearing two years later and three times less compared to deep soils (Tan and Thong, Soils of the Ulu Dong Series have to-date been only mapped in the states of Kelantan, Pahang and Johor.

Soil physical properties and water movement within soil were investigated using dyes in a tropical rain forest, the Bukit Tarek Experimental Watershed of Peninsular Malaysia. The saturated hydraulic conductivity (K s) decreased with increasing soil depth.

The K s values were higher than. Biochar is known to ameliorate soil fertility and improve crop production but information regarding soil microbiota responses on biochar amendment remains limited. The experiment was conducted to study the effect of biochars from palm kernel (pyrolysed at °C) and rice husk (gasified at °C) in a sandy loam Acrisol from Peninsular Malaysia.

Peninsular Malaysia (Malay: Semenanjung Malaysia), also known as Malaya or West Malaysia, is the part of Malaysia which occupies the southern half of the Malay Peninsula and the surrounding islands.

Its area issquare kilometres (51, sq mi), which is nearly 40% of the total area of the country; the other 60% is East comparison, it is slightly larger than England. Andriesse () estimates the extent of organic soils in Malaysia to be 25, km2.

Also Ambak & Che () estimate the recent peatlands to cover approximat km². For Peninsular Malaysia they give an area of 9, km² of peatlands after Abdul Jamil et al. (), whereas for Sarawak and Sabah they give an area of 15, km². cation of acid sulfate soils in Peninsular Malaysia. DEFINITIONS As mentioned earlier, the major difficulty in interpreting published data is the lack ofuni­ formity of the definitions of acid sulfCl:te soils.

Today the criteria used in Peninsular Malaysia is based on those given in Soil Taxonomy (Soil SurveyStaff, ). SulfidicMaterials. 18 profiles belonging to 14 soil series of the T2 terrace soils of Peninsular Malaysia were studied. The soils are derived from alluvial materials of mixed origin of Holocene age.

They are mainly Inceptisols. Others are classified as Entisols, Ultisols and Alfisols. The study indicates that the soils are either in the. Peninsular Malaysia based on elevation and wetlands for extant forests in (NRE, ) and the land areas of the major forest types based on the map are provided in T able 3.

T able 3. An extension of data for 76 soil series for Peninsular Malaysia from soil survey data (DOA, ) as shown in Figure 3 was obtained and determined for the soil erodibility factor, K using Equation 2 (Tew, ).

The Weischmeier method has been found significantly over-estimated the K factor by Tew (DID, ) for Malaysia soil series.These soils usually require specific amendments for successful agricultural use. In Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah, about and 40 ha of bris soils exist respectively (Thomas, ).

Inthe total area of tin-tailing areas in Peninsular Malaysia was estimated to be approximately ha.The purpose of this book is to provide the latest, if not the most up-to-date information regarding soil pollution from three main perspectives, namely, sources, health effects and management strategies in the agricultural and urban areas.
