The impact of grazing on spatial variability of humus profile properties in a grass-encroached Scots pine ecosystem

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Grazing is often used in management of grass-encroached Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) forests in The Netherlands, because it is thought to increase diversity of vegetation and humus profiles. To test this hypothesis, two 1 ha plots in a primary pine stand on drift sand were grazed for 7 years at high and moderate intensities. The humus profiles of these 2 sites and of a control site were sampled at various scales to assess changes in grass biomass, thickness of ectorganic horizons, organic matter stocks, root stocks, and pH
