Dynamic seed zones to guide climate-smart seed sourcing for tropical dry forest restoration in Colombia KU Leuven
Pedogenic Threshold in Acidity Explains Context-Dependent Tree Species Effects on Soil Carbon KU Leuven
Above- and below-ground complementarity rather than selection drive tree diversity-productivity relationships in European forests KU Leuven
Global data on earthworm abundance, biomass, diversity and corresponding environmental properties KU Leuven
Earthworms are an important soil taxon as ecosystem engineers, providing a variety of crucial ecosystem functions and services. Little is known about their diversity and distribution at large spatial scales, despite the availability of considerable amounts of local-scale data. Earthworm diversity data, obtained from the primary literature or provided directly by authors, were collated with information on site locations, including coordinates, ...
Relative importance of tree species richness, tree functional type, and microenvironment for soil macrofauna communities in European forests KU Leuven
Soil fauna communities are major drivers of many forest ecosystem processes. Tree species diversity and composition shape soil fauna communities, but their relationships are poorly understood, notably whether or not soil fauna diversity depends on tree species diversity. Here, we characterized soil macrofauna communities from forests composed of either one or three tree species, located in four different climate zones and growing on different ...
