Changes in agricultural production methods over the last century have caused a massive reduction and fragmentation of the area of European semi-natural grasslands. It remains unclear whether small and isolated grassland fragments can support viable plant populations in a sustainable way. In our study area in southern Belgium, the extent of calcareous grasslands was reduced from c. 650 ha in 1775 to less than 30 ha in 2004. We used AFLP markers to quantify the effects of present and historical… CONTINUE READING
