- ... The long-term consequences of changing beech abundance by admixture of valuable broad-leaved species and its effects on nutrient cycling and soil-related processes are not sufficiently investigated. Four different forest types [i.e., beech-hornbeam-maple-alder (Fagus orientalis-Carpinus betulus-Acer velutinum-Alnus glutinosa), beech-hornbeam-maple (Fagus orientalis-Carpinus betulus-Acer velutinum) ...

- ... The properties of litter and soil, which are probably influenced by vegetation traits, have an effect on the fractions of C and N and ultimately global warming. In this study, litter and soil samples were collected from representative forestlands, including a mixed natural forest dominated by hornbeam‑ironwood and tree plantations of ash, maple, cypress and pine which are situated in a temperate a ...
