The increasing dominance of competitive plant species may reduce species richness of plant communities. Yet, species richness may depend on spatial scale and the alien versus native status of the dominant species. To explore the dominance effects of alien versus native species on species richness, we sampled semi-natural grasslands in southwestern Poland. We established 100 m2 squares at different grassland sites, and in two opposite corners we placed two series of five nested plots (0.001, 0.01...

Abstract According facilitative models of succession, trees are great forest ecosystem engineers. The strength of tree stand influences on habitat were tested in rather homogenous conditions where heterogeneity of site condition was not an important influence. We hypothesized that canopy composition affects total aboveground vascular herb layer biomass (THB) and species composition of herb layer plant biomass (SCHB) more significantly than primary soil fertility or slope exposure. The study was ...

Abstract Plants adopt various strategies in response to increasing density. We tested that response in two populations of Lemna minor L. – a free floating aquatic plant that frequently experiences intraspecific competition for space. Surface area of fronds and colonies, colony size (the number of fronds per colony), the rate of reproduction (based on the number of produced fronds) and growth rate (enlargement of surface area of all colonies) were the analysed factors presumably affected by densi...

Abstract Tree-less peatland communities can subject to vegetative succession, which often progresses toward a recovery of woodland or forest dominated by Salix , Betula or Alnus glutinosa . Since this process provides a threat to already established combinations of species and habitats of nature conservation value, there is a need to elaborate an efficient and environmentally friendly method of managing invading species. We investigated the effectiveness of removing invading black alder, Alnus g...

Abstract Seed banks may play a crucial role in the maintenance of community diversity, but their role on semi-natural grasslands, one of the most species rich habitats in Europe, is usually unexplored in population and community studies. We aim to clarify how local factors and topography influence seed bank successional patterns on semi-natural alluvial meadows. All 35 meadows were situated in the Eagle (Orlicke) Mountains in the Czech Republic and were divided according to fallow time. Paired p...

Secondary succession in former arable fields (i.e. old fields) might be altered by the colonization of invasive alien species, with possible community-wide impacts, hindering the ability of old fields to become species-rich communities. However, the effects of invasive species on local communities have rarely been addressed in the light of secondary succession. Therefore, we studied the impact of the highly invasive Solidago canadensis on plant and pollinator communities along a gradient of inva...

This study examined a non-soil seed bank deposited inside the tussock cores of Carex cespitosa, a perennial plant with a tussock growth form. Based on the vertical structure of the seed bank in 20 tussock cores, the history of changes in plant species composition during succession in an unmowed grassland in the Bialowieza National Park was reconstructed. Three horizontal layers were distinguished in each tussock core: upper (corresponding to the initial forest stage), middle (transitory stage—fo...

We analyzed basal area (BA) growth using growth data obtained from permanent plots over 4 years for five major tree species in Anhui Province, eastern China. The studied species were dominant conifers (Pinus massoniana and Cunninghamia lanceolata) and co-dominant broad-leaved species (Castanopsis eyrei, Castanopsis sclerophylla, and Loropetalum chinense). A hierarchical Bayesian approach was used to estimate species-specific parameters and to quantify a spatially autocorrelated random effect. We...

Abstract After foundation of the Wadden Sea National Park, grazing and artificial drainage was ceased or reduced on large areas of the salt marshes at the Schleswig-Holstein mainland coast (Northern Germany). The effect of grazing cessation versus intensive and moderate grazing on vegetation diversity was studied on small (plant species richness on plots between 0.01 and 100 m 2 ) and large scale (vegetation type richness per hectare) over 18 to 20 years by analysing data from long-term monitori...
