Forests are the dominant terrestrial ecosystems on the Earth. During natural succession, a quite known pattern of changes occur (i.e., the process of a gradual assemblage of plant species and associated organisms best adapted to the current habitat conditions). Much less is known about novel ecosystem establishment's primary spontaneous successiona...
Article
Our knowledge about mites, including mesostigmatids, compared to their significant role in soil‐forming processes on post‐industrial areas, is currently insufficient. Therefore, the study aim was to analyze the succession of mesostigmatid communities in relation to litter decomposition of seven tree species (Acer pseudoplatanus L., Alnus glutinosa...

Proper estimation of the herb layer annual net primary production (ANPP) can help to appreciate the role of this layer in carbon assimilation and nutrient cycling. Simple methods of ANPP estimation often understate its value. More accurate methods take into account biomass increments of individual species but are more laborious. We conducted our st...
Article
Understanding the mechanisms of singular species and their traits impacts on ecosystem functions, is crucial in the era of unprecedented anthropogenic changes of the environment, e.g. to predict changes in carbon and nutrient cycling connected with species shifts. It may allow us to take protective measurements and mitigate the negative effects of...
