[ID: 186] Tree species identity and mixing effects on soil microbial communities

PI: Robert Blasko

The aim of this study is to explore the tree species identity and mixing effects on general composition of the soil microbial communities. We sampled soil and fine roots in 2017 and analyzed PLFA bio markers and ergosterol in soil samples, as well as ergosterol in tree fine roots in Norway spruce, Scots pine, and mixed stands of these two species at Främlingshem to describe the soil microbial communities. We aim to explore, whether the different productivity of these stands can be related to the differences in soil microbial communities. Nov 2017: Soil sampling for fine-root biomass, PLFA and ergosterol (in soil and in fine roots) analyses.

[ID: 106] Impacts of tree species identity and mixing on ecosystem C and N stocks

PI: Robert Blasko

The original aim of this experiment was to compare the growth of Scots pine vs. Norway spruce, and their mixture at a medium fertility site near Främlingshem suitable for the growth of both species. Our aim was to evaluate the effects of tree species and their mixing on ecosystem C and N stocks, as well as on some of the important C fluxes.
