Impact of shrub cover and wild ungulate browsing on the vegetation of restored mountain hay meadows

Gergely Pápay, Orsolya Kiss, Ádám Fehér, Gábor Szabó, Zita Zimmermann, Levente Hufnagel, Eszter S. Falusi, Ildikó Járdi, Dénes Saláta, László Szemethy, Károly Penksza & Krisztián Katona
Grasslands of middle mountain regions are among the most diverse habitats of the Carpathian Basin, but they are threatened by spontaneous succession leading to woody encroachment. It is a high priority of nature conservation to preserve these diverse habitats by suppressing the woody encroachment and to create new open habitat patches by scrub removal. The main goal of this study was to investigate the effect of shrub cover on plant species composition and vegetation in...

Loss of ubiquitinated protein autophagy is compensated by persistent cnc/NFE2L2/Nrf2 antioxidant responses

Arindam Bhattacharjee, Adél Ürmösi, András Jipa, Levente Kovács, Péter Deák, Áron Szabó & Gábor Juhász
SQSTM1/p62-type selective macroautophagy/autophagy receptors cross-link poly-ubiquitinated cargo and autophagosomal LC3/Atg8 proteins to deliver them for lysosomal degradation. Consequently, loss of autophagy leads to accumulation of polyubiquitinated protein aggregates that are also frequently seen in various human diseases, but their physiological relevance is incompletely understood. Here, using a genetically non-redundant Drosophila model, we show that specific disruption of ubiquitinated protein autophagy and concomitant formation of polyubiquitinated aggregates has hardly any effect on bulk autophagy, proteasome activity...

Biological control properties of microbial plant biostimulants. A review

Sri Ita Tarigan, Szabolcs Toth, Mark Szalai, Jozsef Kiss, Gyorgy Turoczi & Stefan Toepfer
Plant biostimulants, sometimes referred to as biofertilisers or plant enhancers, are ingredients stimulating plant nutrition processes independently of the product’s nutrient content with the sole aim to improve the agronomic performance of a plant. Many of these biostimulants contain microorganisms. Although most of these microorganisms are supposed to only promote plant growth, some have plant protection properties. We reviewed commercial microbial plant biostimulants with regard to their potential effects on insects. This revealed 483 different...

One year of conservation management is not sufficient for increasing the conservation value of abandoned fen meadows

Judit Bódis, Bence Fülöp, Vivien Lábadi, András Mészáros, Bálint Pacsai, Petra Svajda, Orsolya Valkó & András Kelemen
In Central Europe many grasslands are threatened by the abandonment of traditional land use, lead- ing to litter accumulation and encroachment of competitive grasses, woody and invasive species, ulti- mately causing the loss of biodiversity in the long run. Resumption of traditional management practices might reverse the negative effects of abandonment, but can be challenging in the current socio- economic context, especially in habitats providing poor-quality forage, such as fen meadows. Given the limited resources...

Long-term results of initial seeding, mowing and carbon amendment on the restoration of Pannonian sand grassland on old fields

Yesenia Belén Llumiquinga, Bruna Reis, Nora Saradi, Katalin Török, Katalin Szitár & Melinda Halassy
Cropland abandonment is an opportunity for semi-natural biodiverse ecosystems to develop through spontaneous succession or active restoration. Spontaneous recovery is limited by the dispersal and capacity of species to establish under the given environmental circumstances. This paper provides an evaluation of three restoration techniques to overcome dispersal and environmental limitations based on revisiting an experiment with the aim to restore Pannonian sand grasslands on old fields, 16 years after its start. Treatments were carried out...
