    Notes: Abstract  In the central highlands of Mexico, the vegetation is dominated by mesquite (Prosopis spp.), a leguminous tree or shrub. An experiment was carried out to investigate how cultivating the land and the disappearance of the natural ecosystem affected the biological functioning of the soil. Soil was sampled from under the canopy of isolated (MESQ treatment) and densely growing mesquite trees (DENS treatment), from the surrounding soil not covered by the canopies of the trees (BARE treatment) and from adjacent land cultivated with maize (ARABLE treatment). Soil was characterized and then incubated aerobically for 39 days at 22±1  °C and CO2, N2O production, microbial biomass C and inorganic N concentrations were monitored. The organic C content was 2.3 times and 1.1 times greater in the MESQ and the BARE treatments, respectively, than in the ARABLE treatment, while microbial biomass C was 3.5 times and 1.3 times greater. The microbial biomass activity as expressed by CO2 production was 5.9 times and 3.9 times greater in the MESQ and the BARE treatments, respectively, than in the ARABLE treatment, while N mineralization, as witnessed by the increase in NO3 – concentrations, was 3.4 times and 1.7 times greater. No significant amounts of N2O were produced in any of the treatments. It was found that cultivating land characterized by the presence of mesquite changed its characteristics profoundly, and even soil not covered by tree canopies had higher microbial biomass C, and C and N mineralization than soil cultivated with maize and beans.

    Notes: Abstract We present detailed double differential distributions of electrons emitted downstream when 100 and 170 keV protons interact with thin carbon, gold and aluminuum foils and compare them to those obtained with protons and neutral hydrogen projectiles interacting with helium gas. The distributions obtained with the gas target show, besides the well known convoy electron peak produced by capture or loss of electrons into the continuum of the emerging ion, a narrow ridge that is aligned with the beam direction. This ridge, which is attributed to electrons moving in the two Coulomb center potential saddle determined by the target and projectile ions, also appears in the ion-solid electron distributions. A typical solid state effect consists in the appearance of two strong lateral humps which are explained as due to diffraction of the ridge electrons in the three dimensional lattice of the polycrystalline foil material. Contrarily the diffraction of convoy electrons is impeded by their strong correlation to the moving ions. In the case of the Aluminuun target the observed diffraction is typical for Al2O3. This indicates that the observed electrons originate from a thin polycrystalline oxyde layer close to the downstream surface of emission.

    Notes: Abstract In this note we correct previous evidence, according to which a structure, found in double-differential electron distributions induced by ion beam-foil interaction, could be interpreted in terms of Bragg diffraction. We now attribute this structure to a distortion of the electric field of our spectrometer and present distributions taken with a new equipment in which this distortion is eliminated.
