Habitat management: a tool to modify ecosystem impacts of nitrogen deposition? (1/9)

Atmospheric nitrogen deposition has been shown to affect both the structure and the function of heathland ecosystems. Heathlands are semi-natural habitats and, as such, undergo regular management by mowing or burning. Different forms of management remove more or less nutrients from the system, so habitat management has the potential to mitigate some of the effects of atmospheric deposition. Data from a dynamic vegetation model and two field experiments are presented. The first involves nitrogen addition following different forms of habitat management. The second tests the use of habitat management to promote heathland recovery after a reduction in nitrogen deposition. Both modelling and experimental approaches suggest that plant and microbial response to nitrogen is affected by management. Shoot growth and rates of decomposition were lowest in plots managed using more intensive techniques, including mowing with litter removal and a high temperature burn. Field data also indicate that ecosystem recovery from prolonged elevated inputs of nitrogen may take many years, or even decades, even after the removal of plant and litter nitrogen stores which accompanies the more intensive forms of habitat management.  (+info)

Use of multiplex terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism for rapid and simultaneous analysis of different components of the soil microbial community. (2/9)

A multiplex terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (M-TRFLP) fingerprinting method was developed and validated for simultaneous analysis of the diversity and community structure of two or more microbial taxa (up to four taxa). The reproducibility and robustness of the method were examined using soil samples collected from different habitats. DNA was PCR amplified separately from soil samples using individual taxon-specific primers for bacteria, archaea, and fungi. The same samples were also subjected to a multiplex PCR with the primers for all three taxa. The terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism profiles generated for the two sets of PCR products were almost identical not only in terms of the presence of peaks but also in terms of the relative peak intensity. The M-TRFLP method was then used to investigate rhizosphere bacterial, fungal, and rhizobial/agrobacterial communities associated with the dwarf shrub Calluna vulgaris growing in either open moorland, a mature pine forest, or a transition zone between these two habitats containing naturally regenerating pine trees. Rhizosphere microbial communities associated with Vaccinium myrtillus collected from the native pine forest were also investigated. In this study, individual PCR products from the three taxa were also pooled before restriction digestion and fragment size analysis. The terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism profiles obtained with PCR products amplified individually and with multiplexed and pooled PCR products were found to be consistent with each other in terms of the number, position, and relative intensity of peaks. The results presented here confirm that M-TRFLP analysis is a highly reproducible and robust molecular tool for simultaneous investigation of multiple taxa, which allows more complete and higher resolution of microbial communities to be obtained more rapidly and economically.  (+info)

Chemopreventive effects of Calluna vulgaris and Vitis vinifera extracts on UVB-induced skin damage in SKH-1 hairless mice. (5/9)

Solar ultraviolet radiation (UV) is a major cause of non-melanoma skin cancer in humans. Photochemoprevention with natural products represents a simple but very effective strategy in the management of cutaneous neoplasia. The study investigated the protective activity of Calluna vulgaris (Cv) and red grape seeds (Vitis vinifera L, Burgund Mare variety) (BM) extracts in vivo on UVB-induced deleterious effects in SKH-1 mice skin. Forty SKH-1 mice were randomly divided into 4 groups (n=10): control, UVB irradiated, Cv + UVB irradiated, BM+UVB irradiated. Both extracts were applied topically on the skin in a dose of 4 mg/40 mul/cm(2) before UVB exposure - single dose. The effects were evaluated in skin 24 hours after irradiation through the presence of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) and sunburn cells, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin (IL)-6 levels. The antioxidant activity of BM extract was higher than those of Cv extract as determined using stable free radical DPPH assay and ABTS test. One single dose of UVB generated formation of CPDs (p<0.0001) and sunburn cells (p<0.0002) and increased the cytokine levels in skin (p<0.0001). Twenty hours following irradiation BM extract inhibited UVB-induced sunburn cells (p<0.02) and CPDs formation (p<0.0001). Pretreatment with Cv and BM extracts resulted in significantly reduced levels of IL-6 and TNF-alpha compared with UVB alone (p<0.0001). Our results suggest that BM extracts might be a potential candidate in preventing the damages induced by UV in skin.  (+info)

Calluna vulgaris extract modulates NF-kappaB/ERK signaling pathway and matrix metalloproteinase expression in SKH-1 hairless mice skin exposed to ultraviolet B irradiation. (6/9)

Photochemoprevention with natural products represents a new concept in the attempt to reduce the occurrence of skin cancer. However, the molecular mechanisms caused by ultraviolet light exposure remain still unclear. The aim of the study was to assess the mechanisms involved in the action of a Calluna vulgaris (Cv) extract, administered in single or multiple doses (10 consecutive days), on UVB-induced skin damage in SKH-1 hairless mice. The extract was topically applied 30 min before each UVB exposure in two doses (2.5 and 4 mg total polyphenolic content/40 mul/cm(2)). At 24 hours after the last treatment, total mitogen-activated protein kinase (p44/42MAPkinase, ERK 1/2), nuclear factor-kappaB (phospho-NF-kappaB p65), matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-2, MMP-9) and metalloproteinase inhibitor 1 (TIMP-1) levels were measured in skin using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). MMP-2 and -9 activities were additionally evaluated by zymography. One topical application of Cv extract reduced the secretion (p<0.004) and inhibited MMP-9 activity UVB-mediated (54% inhibition) via inhibition of NF-kappaB activation (68% inhibition). In multiple UVB exposures, both doses of Cv extract induced the increase of ERK 1/2 level in correlation with activation of NF-kappaB and reduced the secretion (p<0.04) and activation of MMP-9 (62% inhibition). Pretreatment with Cv diminished the MMP-2 protein secretion only in one dose UVB-irradiated group (p<0.0001) and decreased TIMP-1 level (p<0.001). These results demonstrated the dual behavior of Cv extract in skin protection against single versus multiple doses of UVB irradiation.  (+info)

Invasion ecology, disturbance and successional ecology, and conservation biology are four areas of increasingly realised importance in the maintenance and understanding of the worlds remaining natural ecosystems. The impacts of biological invasions and the role of physical disturbance on whole communities is difficult to comprehensively study, but can often be best viewed via invertebrate assemblages and their plant habitats. In this thesis I have taken the opportunity to study these concepts in an area where conservation is of national importance, Tongariro National Park (New Zealand). The Park, for the last 80 years, has and is, suffering from invasion by Calluna vulgaris (European heather), which radically changes the plant composition of many of the landscapes in the Park and thus the resource base of the invertebrate communities. This is a community-based study focusing on the structures of invertebrate assemblages, their ability to adapt and be resilient in relation to their changing ...
Aim: To test if there is an interactive effect between tree and understory species on the soil microbial community (SMC), community level physiological profiles (CLPP) and soil micro-fauna. Method: A replicate pot experiment with five sapling tree species (Betula pendula, Betula pubescens, Sorbus aucuparia, Quercus petraea and Pinus sylvestris) and a no-tree treatment with and without Calluna vulgaris was established. After 21 months samples were taken for phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) analysis, CLPP and soil microfauna assessment. Results: There was an interactive effect of tree species and Calluna on the SMC, CLPP and nematode densities. Calluna addition changed the SMC composition (increase in fungal PLFAs) and the CLPP (lower utilisation of most carbon sources but greater utilisation of phenolic acids). A multivariate test for homogeneity of dispersion showed that while Calluna addition resulted in the presence of an altered microbial composition, it did not result in there being less ...

Heather is an important food source for various sheep and deer which can graze the tips of the plants when snow covers low-growing vegetation. Willow grouse and red grouse feed on the young shoots and seeds of this plant.[38] Both adult and larva of the heather beetle (Lochmaea suturalis) feed on it, and can cause extensive mortality in some instances. The larvae of a number of Lepidoptera species also feed on the plant, notably the small emperor moth Saturnia pavonia. Formerly heather was used to dye wool yellow and to tan leather. With malt, heather is an ingredient in gruit, a mixture of flavourings used in the brewing of heather-beer during the Middle Ages before the use of hops. Thomas Pennant wrote in A Tour in Scotland (1769) that on the Scottish island of Islay ale is frequently made of the young tops of heath, mixing two thirds of that plant with one of malt, sometimes adding hops.[39]. From time immemorial heather has been used for making besoms, a practice recorded in Buy Broom ...

In the UK the funding mechanism for moorland restoration is implemented primarily through agri-environment schemes, yet comparatively little is known of the nutritional consequences of selecting diets from semi-natural vegetation communities. In this study the feed intake and diet digestibility of four groups of animals grazing heathland swards with low (8%) and high (61%) percentages of cover of Calluna vulgaris were estimated using n-alkanes. The impact of diet choice on metabolic status was monitored through blood sampling, and complementary in vitro studies investigating species/breed differences in gut microbial populations were carried out using faecal samples. Two breeds of sheep (Welsh Mountain (WM) and Scottish Blackface (SBF)) and two breeds of cattle (Welsh Black (WB) and Continental cross (CX)) grazed the experimental sites during two separate 14-day sampling sessions, in July and September, respectively. Between-species and between-breed differences in intake and diet digestibility ...

Findings from nitrogen (N) manipulation studies have provided strong evidence of the detrimental impacts of elevated N deposition on the structure and functioning of heathland ecosystems. Few studies, however, have sought to establish whether experimentally observed responses are also apparent under natural, field conditions. This paper presents the findings of a nationwide field-scale evaluation of British heathlands, across broad geographical, climatic and pollution gradients. Fifty two heathlands were selected across an N deposition gradient of 5.9 to 32.4 kg ha−1 yr−1. The diversity and abundance of higher and lower plants and a suite of biogeochemical measures were evaluated in relation to climate and N deposition indices. Plant species richness declined with increasing temperature and N deposition, and the abundance of nitrophilous species increased with increasing N. Relationships were broadly similar between upland and lowland sites, with the biggest reductions in species number associated

Anode: 2Fe → 2Fe2+ + 4e- → 2Fe3+ + 6e-. Laboratory experiments providing data for design of the field-scale system required a power supply to deliver 60~80 mA current at constant voltage of 2-5 V in a 1 L reactor. In such experiments, constant voltage DC power supplies (B&K Precision model 1635A, Tektronix CPS250) have been employed to supply the lower levels of current required.. In contrast with the laboratory system, the field-scale system requires a constant 2 A DC current at 4 ~ 10 V, delivered to twelve 2.54 cm (1 in) diameter iron rod anodes and cathodes. Therefore, one B&K Precision Model 1902 power supply (Figure 2) is used in the filed system as power supply for the IMA reactor (Figure 3). The reactor is a 56.9 L (15 gal) tank fitted with twelve 2.54 cm (1 in) diameter iron rod anodes and cathodes, across which a constant 2 A DC current is to be applied by external power source (4 ~ 10V DC)..

Abstract: Dominant plant species established in the understory of clear-cuts may have a strong biochemical influence on pine regeneration process, with important consequences for reforestation management. We evaluated and compared the total phenolic content and the allelopathic activity of acqueous extracts from both roots and shoots of dominant plant species established in 1-yr-old and 2-yr-old clear-cuts of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands in Lituania. The highest total content of phenolic compounds was detected in the lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.) shoots from 1-yr-old and 2-yr-old clear-cuts, as well as in the common heather (Calluna vulgaris [L.[ Hull) shoots from 1-yr-old clear-cuts. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to identify and quantify the allelochemicals present in the active fraction to determine their possible role in allelopathy. The highest variety and content of phenolic compounds were observed in shoot extracts of the dominant species from both 1-yr
Dulfer[5][6] published the last revision of the genus Erica in the 1960s, treating 605 species. Many new species have subsequently been described (particularly in South Africa) and a further 83 have been included in Erica from former minor genera, such as Phillipia Klotzsch and Blaeria L.[7] A more recent overview of Erica species is provided in an electronic identification aid,[8] but a modern taxonomic revision of the genus as a whole is still lacking. A number of increasingly detailed phylogenetic hypotheses for Erica have been published based on nuclear ribosomal and plastid DNA sequences.[9][10][11][12] The closest relatives of Erica are Daboecia (one or two species) and Calluna (monospecific), representing the oldest surviving lineages of a, by inference, ancestrally Palearctic tribe Ericeae.[10] The small number of European Erica species represent the oldest lineages of the genus, within which a single, order-of-magnitude more species-rich, African clade is nested.[11] Within the ...

Subsurface microorganisms may respond to increased CO2 levels in ways that significantly affect pore fluid chemistry. Changes in CO2 concentration or speciation may result from the injection of supercritical CO2 (scCO2) into deep aquifers. Therefore, understanding subsurface microbial responses to scCO2, or unnaturally high levels of dissolved CO2, will help to evaluate the use of geosequestration to reduce atmospheric CO2 emissions. This study characterized microbial community changes at the 16S rRNA gene level during a scCO2 geosequestration experiment in the 1.4 km-deep Paaratte Formation of the Otway Basin, Australia. One hundred and fifty tons of mixed scCO2 and groundwater was pumped into the sandstone Paaratte aquifer over 4 days. A novel U-tube sampling system was used to obtain groundwater samples under in situ pressure conditions for geochemical analyses and DNA extraction. Decreases in pH and temperature of 2.6 log units and 5.8°C, respectively, were observed. Polyethylene glycols (PEGs)
Two papers in this issue discuss flowering - one addresses its timing, and the other the specification of flower organ identity. On p. 3213, Hoecker and colleagues have investigated how the SPA protein family helps plants to adjust their development to the environment. The researchers have previously shown that SPA proteins are required for skotomorphogenesis (the growth that occurs when seedlings are kept in the dark); now they investigate the role of SPA proteins in photoperiodic flowering (the timing of flowering in response to day length). They show that all four SPA proteins interact with CONSTANS (CO), which is essential for the early flowering that occurs in response to long days. CO transcription is regulated by the circadian clock and its protein is stabilised by light, which together allow CO protein to accumulate only when days are long. The presence of high levels of CO protein in spa triple mutants lead the authors to speculate that SPA proteins control the stability of CO in ...

Over the past few years RAVON have been developing their conservation programme for the native grass snake (Natrix helvetica). This programme has included specific habitat management for grass snakes, to enhance their breeding success and thereby increase the sustainability of populations. One of the most successful interventions has been the creation of egg-laying heaps, which have proven to be a simple, yet effective way of boosting juvenile recruitment. The key to the success of these is the composition and structure of the egg-laying heap, such that it maintains an even temperature, perfect for incubating grass snake eggs, but is not too compact, so that the animals can move around within it..

Microorganisms are intimately involved in a plethora of biogeochemical processes in the environment including metal and mineral transformations as well as the cycling of metals, organometals, metalloids and radionuclides. These biogeochemical processes include adsorption, precipitation, and redox oscillations. An understanding of these biogeochemical processes is critical to predict the fate of metals and radionuclides in soils and aquifers, e.g. by developing reactive transport models and updating existing ones. Consequently an in-depth understanding of these processes will aid in devising appropriate remediation schemes. With this background, the proposed session invites abstracts related to laboratory and field-scale studies involving (i) the redox transformation of metals and radionuclides by microbes, their metabolites and autochthonous organic compounds such as humic substances, (ii) metal adsorption, precipitation and uptake by microbes, (iii) nano-scale characterization and reactivity of ...

Monofloral honey is a type of honey which has a distinctive flavor or other attribute due to its being predominantly from the nectar of one plant species. It is stored and labeled separately so as to command a premium price. While there may never be an absolute monofloral type, some honeys are relatively pure due to the prodigious nectar production of a particular species, such as citrus (Orange blossom honey), or there may be little else in bloom at the time. Beekeepers learn the predominant nectar sources of their region, and often plan harvests to keep especially fine ones separate. For example, in the southern Appalachians, sourwood honey, from a small tree that blooms late in the season, is highly regarded. Beekeepers try to remove the previously produced dark and strong flavored tulip poplar honey, just before the sourwood bloom, so it doesnt mix with the lighter sourwood. During sourwood bloom, there is little else for the bees to forage. List of honey plants List of Northern American ...

The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is about to begin the second stage of a Biffa Award funded restoration project at Foxcovert Nature Reserve. The Trust will be restoring an area of Heathland as part of a wider plan to reconnect, restore and recreate the historic Sherwood Forest.. Foxcovert Nature Reserve is a nature reserve near Calverton in Nottinghamshire, made up of areas of secondary woodland and developing heathland. Species found at the site indicate that the secondary woodland was planted on what would have been the most southerly remnant of ancient Sherwood Forest; historically, Sherwood Forest would have been made up of large areas of heathland as well as woodland.. Heathlands are a semi-natural habitat, many created in prehistoric times through clearance of primary woodland. Most heathlands were used for rough grazing, while heather, gorse, bracken and scrub were all traditionally harvested for fuel, fodder, bedding and thatching. In Nottinghamshire, 90% of heathland habitat has been ...

A couple of years ago I asked for suggestions of less familiar vegetables you would like us to grow for your veg boxes. Among the more frequent suggestions were oca, purslane, turmeric, lemon grass, yukon, puntarelle, ratte potatoes, cardoons, some whacky tomatoes and cime di rapa. Im a sucker for a challenge, so we have run growing and cooking trials on these vegetables and more. Inevitably most were flops; they didnt grow, were too slow to harvest, they yellowed or wilted as soon as were picked or, if they grew, lacked culinary merit. I refuse to grow things on the basis of novelty alone; they have to taste good too..

Barthes, B. and E. Roose (2002). Aggregate stability as an indicator of soil susceptibility to runoff and erosion; validation at several levels. Catena 47(2): 133-149.. The evaluation of soil susceptibility to runoff and water erosion in the field is often expensive or time-consuming. Several authors have reported that susceptibility is linked to aggregate stability, whose determination is far easier. However, this susceptibility has generally been deduced from rainfall simulation experiments on sieved soil samples, whose behaviour is not always representative of field-scale phenomena. Our aim was to extend the validity of relationships between soil aggregation and erosion through comparisons of topsoil aggregate stability and field-assessed susceptibility to runoff and erosion. Susceptibility to runoff and erosion was determined at several levels: first, on a southern French Regosol, through measurements of runoff and soil loss from 1-m2 microplots under simulated rainfall; second, from 100- ...
In semi-arid and dry sub-humid sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), high poverty levels and a heavy reliance on small-scale rainfed agriculture make rural livelihoods difficult. Upgrading current farming systems, in a way that safeguards productivity beyond field-scale, is urgent. This thesis builds on a case study of the Makanya catchment in Tanzania, and focuses on the potential of small-scale water system innovations (SWSIs), such as rainwater harvesting and conservation tillage, for increasing on-farm productivity while supporting multi-functional landscapes. The thesis consists of five papers that approach questions of alternative development trajectories for smallholder agro-ecosystems, and effects of SWSIs on key system variables, from varying perspectives. Paper I presents a conceptual model for interpreting multi-equilibrium dynamics in dryland agro-ecosystems, and analyzes Makanyas development over the past 50 years. Paper II investigates farmers strategies to deal with drought and the impact ...
U.S. Geological Survey. Abstract. This paper investigates the effects of transient ground-water flow on dispersion of a waste chloride plume in the basaltic aquifer beneath the Idaho (USA) National Engineering Laboratory. In an early application of numerical modeling techniques to the two-dimensional simulation of field-scale plumes, previous investigators identified longitudinal and transverse dispersivities using an independently calibrated steady-state flow model and matching contours of observed and simulated concentrations. The unusual result of calibrated transverse dispersivity (140 m) being significantly larger than longitudinal dispersivity (90 m) has been attributed to spatial heterogeneity, the fractured nature of the aquifer, and to the use of a two-dimensional model. New calibrations of the solute-transport model are performed on point concentration observations using a flow model incorporating transient recharge conditions that cause significant fluctuations in velocity. Under ...
Biotransformation is known as the most relevant removal mechanism for trace organic chemicals (TOrCs) in natural treatment systems (Alidina et al., 2014) which have a great potential to efficiently remove microbial contaminants, organic matter and several TOrCs (Tufenkji et al., 2002). Based on recent studies pointing out an enhanced transformation of TOrCs under oxic and carbon-limited conditions (e.g. Regnery et al., 2015), the sequential managed aquifer recharge technology (SMART) was established (Regnery et al., 2016). The combination of two infiltration steps with an intermediate re-aeration results in favorable oxic and carbon-limited conditions in the second infiltration step (Regnery et al., 2016). In addition to the Prairie Waters Project in Aurora (Colorado, USA) (Regnery et al., 2016), the SMART concept was successfully demonstrated in laboratory-scale and field-scale experiments in Berlin, Germany (Hellauer et al., 2017a; Hellauer et al., 2017b). Recent studies revealed an ...

Habitat management appears important to a farms bTB risk. Nature friendly management practices-the presence of ungrazed wildlife strips, and the greater availability, width and continuity of hedgerow-are all associated with reduced bTB incidence. The results are unlikely to be artefactual: in contrast to other habitat variables, such as deciduous woodland configuration, the boundary characteristics were retained in high-ranking models after adjustment for herd size and the proximity of the nearest infected herd. Further, the top-ranking model, which included hedgerow availability, had more than twice the support of the model containing just these non-habitat variables. Within-farm habitat characteristics were estimated with some random error in our study (because farm perimeter locations were not known), and the true relationships will therefore tend to be even stronger than those we have observed.. Any of the habitat factors associated with bTB risk locally could operate in conjunction with ...

Brown Hare. Photo: Molly Crookshank. Sadly, the UK is said to be one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world. Our biodiversity is threatened by the demand for mass development from our human activities. In the UK alone agriculture covers over 70% of the land, totalling 20 million hectares! With agriculture taking up the vast majority of the UK (this is no different in other parts of Europe), effective habitat management is essential to protect our natural world. As the global human population has increased, so has the demand and pressure to produce both more, and cheaper food. This has increased the intensification of farming methods, creating a monoculture environment, including the historic removal of trees and hedges to increase field size and more land being exposed to herbicides and fertilisers. Globally, habitats have become increasingly fragmented, isolating animals and preventing their natural movement. This isolation decreases genetic diversity and reduces survival rates, as ...

The aim of this module is to deliver a unique perspective on the theory and practical management of disease in wildlife. The various types of disease agent (viral, bacterial, parasitic etc) and disease process (endemic, epidemic and exotic) will be presented, along with the various justifications for disease control (zoonoses, economic and human welfare). The module will develop the students knowledge of the epidemiological process, transmission dynamics and an introduction to epidemiological modelling. The various means of disease management such as vaccination, culling, fertility control and habitat management will be presented in the context of both endemic disease and as a contingency for an exotic disease outbreak. The different approaches to surveillance and monitoring of wildlife disease will be examined.. ...

The book is arranged alphabetically by flower type. Each flower type has at least two recipes, some simple and some elaborate. The recipes start with an ingredient list, which tells you what flowers are required and how many stems of each, and a recommended vessel. Most recipes are illustrated with step by step photo instructions, which tell you exactly what to add and in what order. This is what is so great for me, as I often have problems with my arrangements flopping. Is it because I dont have enough stems or because Im adding things in the wrong order? I think that once Ive practised with a few of these recipes Ill have a better idea ...

This is a distinctive species, all the wings being largely white except for a black blotch on the costa of the forewing. The wingspan is 20-24 mm. Often two broods are produced each year and the adults can be seen at any time during the summer and autumn. The moths fly at night and are attracted to light and nectar-rich flowers. The larva is rather variable but is usually green or yellow, often with red markings. It feeds on the flowers of a variety of plants (see list below). The species overwinters as a pupa. ...
