Previous studies have shown the existence of a vertical micro-distribution of testate amoebae in the first centimeters of Sphagnum and their response to nutrient enrichment. In order to test the response of testate amoebae to depth and N addition in dry moss carpets recolonizing cutover peatlands, we sampled Sphagnum that had received 0, 1, 3, or 10g N m(-2) yr(-1) for three years. The mosses were cut into three segments: 0-1cm, 1-3cm and 3-5cm and analyzed for testate amoebae. The overall… CONTINUE READING
