1. The most common mechanism of biological invasions is an increase in competition, which usually results in the loss of biodiversity. The invasion of Bromus erectus (Syn. Bromopsis erecta) in calcareous grasslands of western and central Europe is well-documented. However, it is largely unknown to what extent this development affects biodiversity....

... Large portions of the threatened plant and insect species of calcareous grasslands and heathlands depend on early-and mid-successional stages (Bourn and Thomas, 2002;Fartmann et al., 2012;Poniatowski et al., 2020;Helbing et al., 2021;Streitberger et al., 2021a;. As a result, conservation management in both habitat types aims to counteract succession and to establish short swards rich in bare ground (Dekoninck et al., 2007;Poniatowski et al., 2018;. However, as our study highlights, many bird species, among them several threatened ones, strongly benefit from the occurrence of the keystone species Common juniper. ...
... Mit einer Flächenausdehnung von etwa 750 Hektar bilden sie das größte und bedeutsamste Kalkmagerrasengebiet in der nördlichen Hälfte Deutschlands (Fartmann 2004). Eine Vielzahl seltener Tier-und Pflanzenarten tritt hier auf, die in anderen Regionen längst ausgestorben sind (Fartmann 2004, Poniatowski & Fartmann 2006, Fartmann et al. 2012, Poniatowski & Hertenstein 2013, Helbing & Poniatowski 2015. Dem hohen naturschutzfachlichen Wert der Region wurde Rechnung getragen, indem mehrere Naturschutz-und FFH-Gebiete entlang der Diemel und ihrer Zuflüsse ausgewiesen wurden. ...
