An inter-laboratory comparison of ten different ways of measuring soil microbial biomass C
TLDR
The relationship between the basic FI method and the other methods was mainly affected by the respiration rate of non-fumigated soil, and the FI method is less suitable for the calibration of the FE and SIR methods in forest soils than in arable soils. Expand
Gradients in a Tropical Mountain Ecosystem of Ecuador
Part I Introduction 1 The Ecosystem (Reserva Biologica San Francisco) E. Beck, F. Makeschin, F. Haubrich, M. Richter, J. Bendix, C. Valerezo 2 Mountain rain forests in southern Ecuador as a hotspotExpand
A multi-criteria approach for an integrated land-cover-based assessment of ecosystem services provision to support landscape planning
TLDR
The results of the study show that the combination of selected services and land cover data can contribute to regional planning by communicating the effect of land cover change on ecosystem services groups, especially when applied as an evaluation basis in the tool Pimp Your Landscape (PYL). Expand
Short-rotation plantations of balsam poplars, aspen and willows on former arable land in the Federal Republic of Germany. III. Soil ecological effects
Abstract As part of an interdisciplinary research program, soil ecological effects of short-rotation forestry were studied at three experimental plantations on former arable soils in southernExpand
Short-rotation plantations of balsam poplars, aspen and willows on former arable land in the Federal Republic of Germany. I. Site–growth relationships
TLDR
The balsam poplar Muhle Larsen proved to be the most interesting species tested and seems to be well supplied with nutrients for optimal growth and does not need any fertilization or pesticide treatment for at least 10–15 years. Expand
Effects of energy forestry on soils
The effects of energy forestry on former arable soils are summarized based on our own data from interdisciplinary field experiments as well as on literature published. The present results showExpand
A contribution towards a transfer of the ecosystem service concept to landscape planning using landscape metrics
TLDR
Landscape metrics are implemented in the cellular automaton based software “Pimp Your Landscape” to contribute to a more realistic appraisal of the potential for landscapes to provide ecosystem services beyond the contribution of single ecosystem services or land cover classes. Expand
Short-rotation plantations of balsam poplars, aspen and willows on former arable land in the Federal Republic of Germany. II. Nutritional status and bioelement export by harvested shoot axes
TLDR
The foliar nutrient levels in combination with the results of the fertilization trial, in terms of biomass yield, clearly show the balsam poplars and the aspen to be well supplied with all macronutrients on all sites, independently ofThe fertilization regimes. Expand
Land use/land cover change analysis and its impact on soil properties in the northern part of Gadarif region, Sudan
Several decades of intensive dry land farming in the Gadarif region, located in the Eastern part of Sudan, has led to rapid land use/land cover (LULC) changes mainly due to agricultural expansion,Expand
