Ältere Erwachsene können ihr Risiko eines Sturzunfalls verringern, wenn sie sturzpräventiv trainieren. Hierzu müssen sie regelmässig die Beinkraft und das Gleichgewicht trainieren sowie kognitiv-motorisches Training ausüben. In der vorliegenden Studie wurde untersucht, inwieweit Anbieter von Sport und Bewegung das sturzpräventive Training bereits i...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The report includes a 4-page executive summary in English, French and Italian. EN: The high relevance in relation to the overall accident occurrence illustrates the urgency of fall prevention work. This report analyses the accident occurrence of falls with the causal involvement of flooring and ground surfaces in Switzerland, highlights the wide...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The report includes a 4-page executive summary in English, French and Italian. EN: There is currently little detailed knowledge on stair safety. Therefore, this report has examined in closer detail the accident occurrence of stair falls in Switzerland, compiled relevant influencing factors and developed prevention approaches and opportunities base...

Appropriate physical training enables older adults to reduce their risk of suffering fall-related accidents. A representative survey of the 60- to 79-year-old Swiss population explored how widespread fall prevention training already is in the target group and which promoting and inhibiting factors influence this spread. A distinction was made betwe...
Conference Paper
Background Fatality tops the injury pyramid. Knowledge of the extent and nature of fatal sports injuries is a key element in prevention. However, those data were not available for a long time in Switzerland. Like other countries, Switzerland has a mortality database, but with 3 major shortcomings: it is almost impossible to identify sports fataliti...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Accidents are one of the most significant public health issues, with far-reaching consequences for in-dividuals and society. Every year, around 1 million people are injured in non-occupational accidents in Switzerland; 2400 die as a result. The BFU, Swiss Council for Accident Prevention, concentrates its activities primarily on focal points in the...
Technical Report
Full-text available
In the last 20 years, there has been an annual average of 184 fatalities among people doing sport in Switzerland, including 58 tourists from abroad (ntotal=3676). The number of fatalities has varied over the years, which is attributable to the different exposure times (number of hours of doing sports). BFU statistics cover all sports fatalities. Th...
Article
Aims Non-structural carbohydrates (NSCs) are plant storage compounds used for metabolism, transport, osmoregulation and regrowth following the loss of plant tissue. Even in conditions suitable for optimal growth, plants continue to store NSCs. This storage may be due to passive accumulation from sink-inhibited growth or active reserves that come at...
Article

Storing large amounts of organic carbon, soils are a key but uncertain component of the global carbon cycle, and accordingly, of Earth System Models (ESMs). Soil organic carbon (SOC) dynamics are regulated by a complex interplay of drivers. Climate, generally represented by temperature and moisture, is regarded as one of the fundamental controls. H...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Fall prevention is one of the focal points of injury prevention in Switzerland. The incidence rates of fall related injuries (3 500 per 100 000) and deaths (20 per 100 000) are high in global comparison. The main reason is the aging population. Today, people aged 65 and more represent 18% of the Swiss population and their risk to suffer severe inju...
Technical Report
bfu statistics cover all sports fatalities. Accidents suffered by cyclists are recorded if they happen during sporting activities. In the case of traffic accidents involving cyclists and pedestrians, it is usually not clear from the accident report whether the person in question was on the road in connection with sport. For this reason, these are n...

Full-text available
Laboratory soil incubations provide controlled conditions to investigate carbon and nutrient dynamics; however, they are not free of artefacts. As carbon and nitrogen cycles are tightly linked, we aimed at investigating whether the incubation-induced accumulation of mineral nitrogen (N min) biases soil organic carbon (SOC) mineralisation. For this,...
Data
Results of Student’s t-tests to compare: in row-1, two incubation systems (i.e. leached microlysimeters and un-leached beakers) in two soils (i.e. high and low C:N ratios) and in row-2, two soils when incubated in two incubation systems. Data tested are cumulative carbon mineralised relative to total soil organic carbon (Fig 3) over the 121-day inc...
Data
Results of Student’s t-tests to compare two incubation systems (i.e. leached microlysimeters and un-leached beakers) in two soils (i.e. high and low C:N ratios). Data tested are soluble organic carbon (OC) relative to total soil organic carbon (Fig 1A and 1B) over the 121-day incubation (g kg-1 OC). SWEe-OC was measured in 1:5 soil water extracts (...

Article
Plant–soil interactions are recognized to play a crucial role in the ecosystem response to climate change. We developed a facility to disentangle the complex interactions behind the plant–soil C feedback mechanisms. The MICE (‘Multi-Isotope labelling in a Controlled Environment’) facility consists of two climate chambers with independent control of...

Isotope labelling is a powerful tool to study elemental cycling within terrestrial ecosystems. Here we describe a new multi-isotope technique to label organic matter (OM). We exposed poplars (Populus deltoides × nigra) for 14 days to an atmosphere enriched in 13CO2 and depleted in 2H218O. After 1 week, the water-soluble leaf OM (δ13C = 1346 ± 162‰)...

Various 13 CO 2 labelling approaches exist to trace carbon (C) dynamics in plant-soil systems. However, it is not clear if the different approaches yield the same results. Moreover, there is no consistent way of data analysis to date. In this study we compare with the same experimental setup the two main techniques: pulse and continuous labelling....

Article
Carbon cycling has become of major interest for the understanding and mitigation of global climatic change. Terrestrial ecosystems have a large carbon sequestration potential, but many processes and fluxes of organic matter (OM) cycling within the plant-soil system are not yet well understood [1]. The dynamics of OM cycling within the plant soil-sy...
Article
Terrestrial ecosystems are the third largest carbon storage depot. Recent research has shown that roots and root-derived compounds may play an important role in the long-term stabilization of carbon within the soil. The study of the influence of plants on soil OM stabilization processes asks for advanced methods, which can be used to differentiate...
