CSPs: Herb layer characterization of the central plot in the CSPs

Abstract:
Characterization of the biotic and abiotic conditions give an insight into the structure of the habitat. The presence of dead wood or open soil can act as an indicator for disturbance as well as heterogenity. Therefore this data are indispensable...

CSPs: Herb layer plant biomass in the CSPs, separated into functional groups (2008)

Abstract:
Biomass is a proxy for assessing herb layer productivity. In contrast to most traits it is easy practicable and therefore feasible repeatedly. Since the proportion of functional groups is informative for community structure biomass was harvested s...

CSPs: Herb layer composition and abundance in the central plot of the CSPs

Abstract:
We performed an extensive vegetation survey of the central plots of each CSP in GNNR in 2008. Herb layer communities can serve as ecosystem functioning variable, which is of importance for all community and ecosystem-based statements. We made a de...
