Climate change scenarios for Central Europe predict less frequent but heavier rainfalls and longer drought periods during the growing season. This is expected to alter arthropods in agroecosystems that are important as biocontrol agents, herbivores or food for predators (e.g., farmland birds). In a lysimeter facility (totally 18 3-m 2-plots), we(More)
Wheat is a crop of global importance that supplies carbohydrates to more than half of the worlds’ population. We examined whether climate change-induced rainfall patterns, which are expected to produce less frequent but heavier rain events, will alter the productivity of wheat and agroecosystem functioning on three different soil types. Therefore, in a(More)
A considerable share of greenhouse gas emissions, especially N2O, is caused by agriculture, part of which can be attributed to indirect soil emissions via leaching and runoff. Countries have to report their annual emissions, which are usually calculated by using the default value of 0.3 for FracLEACH, a factor that represents the fraction of nitrogen losses(More)
