No need for grazing exclusion – Sheep grazing supports grassland recovery even from the early successional stages

Rocco Labadessa, Balázs Deák & Orsolya Valkó
Availability and dispersal of target plant propagules and applied management techniques can considerably affect the success of grassland restoration. In our study we explored the effect of sheep grazing on plant species composition of an early staged recovering grassland, which developed on newly created soil surfaces. We recorded the presence and cover of vascular plant species in 17 grazed and 6 ungrazed plots during three consecutive years after the restoration of a landfill in southern...

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...

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...

Grasslands of temperate Europe in a changing world – Editorial to the 16th EDGG Special Feature in Tuexenia

Steffen Boch, Thomas Becker, Balázs Deák, Jürgen Dengler & Valentin H. Klaus
Mitglieder der Eurasian Dry Grassland Group (EDGG) und deren Vorgängerorganisationen geben seit 16 Jahren Grasland-Sonderausgaben (Special Features) in Tuexenia heraus. Das diesjährige Special Feature mit dem Titel Grasländer des gemäßigten Europas in einer sich verändernden Welt umfasst sieben Artikel, die verschiedene Aspekte der Graslandforschung beleuchten und dabei unterschiedliche Organismengruppen einbeziehen: LLUMIQUINGA et al. untersuchten Langzeiteffekte von Einsaat, Mahd und Kohlenstoffzusatz (Reduktion der Nährstoffverfügbarkeit durch Verschiebung des C/N-Verhältnis) auf den Renaturierungserfolg von pannonischem Sandgrasland auf ehemaligen...
