Chen, Y., Day, S.D., Wick, A.F., McGuire, K.J. 2014. Influence of urban land development and subsequent soil rehabilitation on soil aggregates, carbon, and hydraulic conductivity, Science of The Total Environment, 494-495: 329–336, 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2014.06.099.
- Urban land development reduces soil macroaggregates and permeability.
- Can subsurface soil rehabilitation with compost mitigate these effects?
- Soil rehabilitation does not measurably enhance aggregate formation within 5 years.
- Soil rehabilitation does improve subsurface hydraulic conductivity.
- Urban soil ecosystem service provision is strongly management dependent.
