  • Multi-site experiments — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    we investigate whether the functional composition of dung beetle assemblages has an impact on dung decomposition and secondary seed dispersal processes The added value of working at the multi site level is the wide bioclimatic range of sites for this reason sites throughout the entire Western Palaearctic zone are included This allows also us to investigate whether predicted climate change will have an impact on these processes through the changes it induces in dung beetle assemblage composition In 2014 the experiment was run at 12 study sites in eight European countries MSE II The impact of nutrients and climate on litter decomposition Our second multi site experiment addressed the variation of litter decomposition across a European gradient Specifically the study investigated the impact of nutrient availability along a broad climatic gradient to explore the impact of nutrients and climate on decomposition This MSE involved 20 experimental sites in 10 countries with 8 grassland sites and 12 in forested ecosystems Read the full report MSE I Effects of trampling on plant assemblages This experiment looked at vegetation responses to disturbance by trampling which is an important factor controlling the assemblage of plants We established 39 experimental sites in 10 European countries

  • Impact on landscapes under the pressure to produce resources for war — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    this impact In a recent master thesis we could show that considerable pressure was put on especially grazing landscapes of the Austro Hungarian monarchy in particular in the Hungarian Plains for the production of gunpowder in the 18 th and 19th century We can show that about 25 of the available nitrogen of the agricultural system was removed by gunpowder production During this master thesis material was identified which allows to pinpoint saltpeter KNO 3 extraction over a large part of what is nowadays Austria and Hungary We propose to develop this into a catalogue and analyze the data for their long term impact on the nutrient status and balances of the agro ecosystems We have a unique combination of sources the main source are so called Patente decrees allowing the extraction of saltpeter For some Hungarian soils we would like to explore the possibility that saltpeter extraction actually led to the formation of anthrosols influencing the future landscape development over hundreds if not thousands of years We will use the example of 18 th century gunpowder and its long term legacies to point to a long term issue of larger significance that is the impact of warfare on cultural landscapes and ecosystems over the long run This could be developed into a larger project Outputs Güldner D Krausmann F Winiwarter V 2014 From farm to gun and no way back Habsburg gunpowder production in the eighteenth century and its impact on agriculture and soil fertility Reg Environ Change 1 12 doi 10 1007 s10113 014 0737 2 About ALTER Net ALTER Net flyer In this section About us What we do Partners Projects Collaborative projects Multi site experiments Environmental history project Changes in landscape diversity landscape connectivity and hydrogenic ecosystems state in the West Polesie Biosphere Reserve over the
