Table 4 Aggregate-associated organic carbon under the different SWC measures (mean ± SEM)

From: Effect of community-based soil and water conservation practices on soil glomalin, aggregate size distribution, aggregate stability and aggregate-associated organic carbon in northern highlands of Ethiopia

SWC measures SOC in macroaggregates (%) SOC in micro-aggregates (%)
Non-conserved grazing lands 2.2 ± 0.2b 1.8 ± 0.2b
Terraces 2.5 ± 0.2b 2.2 ± 0.2b
Exclosures + terraces 3.1 ± 0.2a 2.8 ± 0.2a
Exclosures alone 2.7 ± 0.1ab 2.3 ± 0.1ab
