Abstract Liming is a common agricultural practice for improving acidic soils, but the addition of liming materials may also promote soil carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, with adverse effects for climate regulation. In grasslands, current understanding of liming impacts on greenhouse gas emissions is limited by a lack of field data on liming and soil respiration. Here we used a two-year field trial and in situ chamber measurements to evaluate the effects of repeated, low-level liming on soil CO2 e...

Abstract Light intensity drives whole-plant carbon gain, with consequences for biomass production and plant community dynamics in forest systems. Recent studies suggest that soil microbial communities may mediate the impacts of resource availability on plant performance, yet little is known about the net effect of conspecific soil microorganisms for tree seedling light responses. Here we examined the interactive effects of light availability and presence of conspecific soil microorganisms on tre...

1.Climate change predictions suggest that summer droughts will become more intense and recurrent in Europe. While drought‐induced reductions in grassland primary productivity are well documented, the drivers behind drought resistance (the capacity to withstand change) and recovery (the capacity for recovery of function) of above‐ and belowground biomass remain poorly understood. 2.Across eight grasslands differing in plant community productivity (CP) we investigated the effects of summer drought...

Abstract Dairy, and more generally ruminant production, is based on grass, fodder crops, and often concentrates that bring additional necessary nutrients. During the transition from the soil–plant system to the animal, the major biochemical change is the uncoupling of carbon and phosphorus from nitrogen, resulting in dung rich in C and P, urine rich in N and K, or a mixture in the form of manures (slurry, solid manure, compost, etc.). In all these animal returns, C, N, P, and K are more or less ...

Abstract Soil microbial communities have the potential to modify plant performance and condition plant species responses to environmental change, but the role of soil microorganisms for plant drought responses remains unclear. We used a novel experimental approach to examine the interactive effects of drought and presence of soil microbes on biomass production and plant traits in a savanna tree species. Seedlings of Bauhinia brachycarpa were grown in sterilized or ‘live’ soil, with or without dr...

Abstract Grassland management has the potential to modify soil carbon (C) mineralization, but the relative importance of combined soil improvers or fertilizers and land use intensity on C mineralization remains unclear. We used laboratory incubations to examine the interactive effects of lime addition, mineral N inputs and grassland management intensity on soil C mineralization potential over 84 days. Monitoring of CO2 production and O2 consumption was coupled with measurements of soil pH and mi...

Interactions between biodiversity loss and climate change present significant challenges for research, policy and management of ecosystems. Evidence suggests that high species diversity tends to increase plant community stability under interannual climate fluctuations and mild dry and wet events, but the overall pattern of diversity–stability relationships under climate extremes is unclear. We comprehensively review results from observational and experimental studies to assess the importance of ...

Climate change projections anticipate increased frequency and intensity of drought stress but grassland responses to severe droughts and their potential to recover are poorly understood. In many grasslands, high land-use intensity has enhanced productivity and promoted resource-acquisitive species at the expense of resource-conservative ones. Such changes in plant functional composition could affect the resistance to drought and the recovery after drought of grassland ecosystems with consequence...

Abstract Plant species may exert a strong influence on soil biological properties, but the linkages between plant and soil responses to severe drought remain unclear. We conducted an outdoor mesocosm experiment with five upland grass species and one Mediterranean drought-resistant grass cultivar to investigate the effects of root biomass and rhizosphere conditions on the drought responses of soil microbial biomass in the topsoil. In particular, we assessed whether variation in the drought resist...
