FOR891_sp05e nitrogen: SP05e Effects of environmental conditions and biodiversity on litter decomposition and nutrient cycling in subtropical forests in China

Description:
In the first phase of BEF-China, Subproject 5 has quantified key pools and fluxes of the nitrogen cycle and in close cooperation with the Chinese counterparts also those of the carbon cycle. These measurements were done in the Comparative Study ...

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...

FOR891_sp09c termites: SP09c Termite diversity and ground food webs in relation to decomposition in a subtropical forest diversity gradient

Description:
The accumulation and decomposition of wood and leaf litter in the forests have been extensively studied and reviewed in the world. Grazing of dead wood and plant litter by soil invertebrates are highly dominated by termites and ants, constitutin...

FOR891_sp12c phosporus: SP12c Root trait variation and plasticity in relation to phosphorus availability in phosphorus-poor subtropical forests

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_NILEx: New Integrated Litter Experiment

Description:
The main objective of the New Integrated Litter Experiment (NILEx) is to quantify the role of biodiversity affecting plant litter decomposition and subsequent mineralisation. Furthermore the impact of litter cover on soil erosion under forest will...

FOR891_sp06c soil: SP06c Soil erosion in a future climate: Mechanism of soil erosion control by vegetation and their role for soil erosion modeling and integrated water resources management

Description:
Existing land use systems often cause severe soil erosion. Now and in future, processes of changing climate and extreme events (high intensity rainfall, drought) as well as land use changes affect extent and spatial distribution of soil erosion ...
