When glaciers retreat they expose barren substrates that become colonized by organisms, beginning the process of primary succession. Recent studies reveal that heterotrophic microbial communities occur in newly exposed glacial substrates before autotrophic succession begins. This raises questions about how heterotrophic microbial communities function in the(More)
Im Zuge eines waldbaulichen Eingriffs wurden ca. 95jährige Fichten und Tannen eines Bergmischwaldes in einem Kleineinzugsgebiet im Flysch (Tegernseer Alpen) nadelanalytisch untersucht. Beide Baumarten sind durch N-Mangel und knappe P-Versorgung gekennzeichnet. Die Fichte leidet zudem unter Mg-Mangel. Die Versorgung mit Spurennährstoffen ist dagegen(More)
Landfill sites are potential sources of hazardous emissions by degradation and transformation processes of waste organic matter. Its chemical composition and microbial degradability are key factors for risk management, after-care, and estimation of potential emissions. The aim of the study is to provide information about composition and extent of(More)
Soils contain anoxic microzones, and acetate is an intermediate during the turnover of soil organic carbon. Due to negligible methanogenic activities in well-drained soils, acetate accumulates under experimentally imposed short-term anoxic conditions. In contrast to forest, agricultural, and prairie soils, grassland soils from Hawaii rapidly consumed rather(More)
 To study the effect of Hieracium pilosella L. invasion on the transformations of soil organic matter of New Zealand tussock grassland soils (Ustochrepts), plant material and soils underneath Hieracium, the surrounding halo, and the adjacent herbfield (depleted tussock grassland) were examined for their chemical composition. An attempt was made to reveal(More)
Im Rahmen des Verbundprojekts “Bodenforschung im deutschen Alpenraum” wurde in zwei Bergwaldeinzugsgebieten die Dynamik der in der wässerigen Phase verschiedener Kompartimente gelösten Stoffe und deren Veränderungen nach einem forstlichen Eingriff untersucht. Die Eintragssituation ist gekennzeichnet durch hohe Niederschlags-, Säure- und Stickstoffmengen. Im(More)
PREFACE The process which gave rise to this book began in the spring of 2006, in the wake of the first 'Broadening Horizons' conference on multidisciplinary landscape study (Ghent, Belgium). At the time, we-a group of 'mere' doctoral students-were already happy enough to have pulled off the organisation of an international conference; the idea of having it(More)
