Summary:

A study on the change of physical and chemical properties of peat after fire in tropical peat swamp forest in the University of Palangka Raya area of Central Kalimantan, Indonesia was carried out on two plots from October to December 2014. One plot was examined two weeks after it was burned while the other plot was not burned. In each plot, replicate samples were taken from different peat depths (010, 1020, 2030, 3040, and 4050 cm)at three locations for analysis of physical and chemical properties. Physical analysis of peat...
