FOR891_sp13c microbe physiology: SP13c Physiological profiles of soil microbial communities

Description:
As partner project to the European subproject 13, the main objective of the Chinese group is to study soil microbial communities under different plant diversity levels and erosion potential, focusing on their functional diversity. In accordance ...

FOR891_sp12c phosporus: SP12c Root trait variation and plasticity in relation to phosphorus availabi...

Description:
Root traits are critical for nutrient uptake in nutrient-poor environments. For phosphorus (P)- poor subtropical forests of BEF-China, important research questions are how root morphological and physiological traits have adapted to low P conditi...

FOR891_sp11e invasibility: SP11e The interplay of herbaceous and woody species richness: impacts on inv...

Description:
This subproject studies the interactions between tree layer diversity, herb layer diversity and invasibility in subtropical China. In the first phase of BEF China we focused on characteristics of the herb layer (1) as response variable to tree l...

Description:
The theory that human intervention promotes the invasion of exotic species has been rarely tested in the montane subtropical area. Similarly little is known about their invasive mechanism. The establishment of the Main Experiment of BEF-China at...

FOR891_sp10e dead wood: SP10e Biodiversity signature in coarse woody detritus dynamics

Description:
Coarse woody debris (CWD) is an important component of forest ecosystems throughout the world. It represents a significant carbon and nutrient pool, promotes biodiversity of wooddwelling organisms, influences erosion and serves as a fuel for wil...
