Effects of different restoration treatments on long-term development of plant diversity and functional trait composition in calcareous grasslands

Stefan Hofmann, Timo Conradi, Kathrin Kiehl & Harald Albrecht
Establishment of calcareous grassland on ex-arable fields by introducing target species is one of the most frequently used methods to restore the species assemblages of this highly endangered habitat type. The present study evaluates the long-term success of calcareous grassland restoration on former arable land in the vicinity of one of the oldest nature reserves in Bavaria, the “Garchinger Heide”. The restoration experiment combined different measures like topsoil removal, transfer of freshly cut seed-containing hay...
