Based on the hypothesis, that diverse ecosystems should not only be more productive but also more resilient against climatic extremes, this sub-project has the aim

1. to make regional assessments of biomass, tree diversity and management as one main basis for selection of the experimental plots

2. to inventory the selected experimental plots with respect to tree and species distribution


The forest inventory included following parameters:

  • general description of the study plot

surrounding, topography, structure and delopmental stages, land use system

  • stock inventory

abundance and diversity, biometric characteristics of single trees, damages and habitat, competition, development and vitality

  • regeneration inventory

abundance and diversity, hemispheric photos, damage caused by game animals

  • Wood Debris

Biomass, degree of decomposition

  • C/N-Analyses

sampling of roots, stem and leaves

  • tree species composition

(Schorfheide, Hainich, Schwäbische Alb)

Experiments

  • fencing experiment in the forest
  • BELongDead
  • seeding of tree species (planned)

The so-called core projects of the BE emerged from the site selection project and the establishment of the exploratories (2006-2008). Since 2008, they have been providing the infrastructure and collecting important basic information on land use, diversity and ecosystem processes (long-term monitoring) for all projects. In addition, they coordinate project-wide activities such as various large-scale experiments.
