Buku

Dengan mengucapkan Syukur Alhamdulillah buku ”Tanah Andosol di Indonesia” dapat diterbitkan. Dengan selesainya buku ini diharapkan memberikan informasi dan wawasan yang lebih mendalam tentang pentingnya tanah Andosol.

Kejadian gunung meletus di Indonesia semakin sering terjadi. Hal tersebut menyadarkan kita semua bahwa Indonesia berada pada daerah yang dikelilingi oleh gunung berapi aktif dan merupakan bagian dari Cincin Api Pasific (Pasific Ring of Fire). Kejadian gunung meletus sering dianggap sebagai suatu musibah tetapi sebenarnya juga bisa dianggap sebagai anugerah. Tanah yang dibentuk karena aktivitas gunung berapi merupakan tanah subur dengan ciri-ciri dan karakteristik yang khas dan unik.

Buku ini merupakan rangkuman berbagai hasil survei, penelitian, dan pengkajian yang dilakukan oleh para peneliti, dosen, dan mahasiswa tentang tanah Andosol yang berkembang dari abu vulkanik gunung berapi di Indonesia dan referensi lain yang berkaitan.

Peatland is one of the largest terrestrial carbon storehouses. However, the carbon it contains is only protected from decomposition by the wet conditions of the peat. Under special conditions where decomposition is slow owing to low oxygen supply (water saturated), low nutrient concentrations, and acidity, dead organic matter from trees or other vegetation can start to pile up and accumulate, creating conditions that further slow decomposition. Specialized trees, sedges and other vegetation start to dominate and a peat swamp forest is formed. When this starts to hold enough water, it can become a semi-autonomous landscape unit, depending on rainfall and atmospheric nutrient inputs, independent of the mineral soil and groundwater. The belowground carbon stocks can reach 10–100 times those of the most lush tropical forest. However, when the forest is cleared and the peat is drained the stored carbon is readily decomposed and released as CO2, the most important greenhouse gas. In addition, excessive drainage of peatland increases its vulnerability to fires and, in turn, the peat loses its function of buffering the surrounding environment from drought by the gradual release of water stored in the peat ‘dome’. What took thousands of years to accumulate can be burnt within a few days and decompose in a few years or decades.

With the increase of human populations, land resources are becoming scarcer. Peatlands that were once formerly regarded as wasteland are increasingly being developed for various economic purposes such as agriculture and settlements. As a consequence, the carbon sink of actively growing peat becomes one of the most important carbon sources associated with land uses, land-use changes and forestry. Tropical peat alone is estimated to contribute 1–3% of global CO2 emissions owing to human activity. In Indonesia, the country that has the largest area of tropical peat, emissions from peatland are around one-third of the total, although the exact numbers are debated and uncertain. Therefore, in the context of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and efforts to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+), conservation and sustainable management of peatland has become one of the main concerns.
