The impacts of long-term, high intensity N addition on soil organic matter accumulation in a boreal forest

PI: Shun Hasegawa

N addition is reported to influence decomposition of soil organic matters and potentially enhance carbon accumulation in boreal or temperate forests. Here, we investigate the effect of chronic N addition on boreal forests situated in norther Sweden with an aim of discerning the mechanisms altering the balance of accumulation and decomposition of soil organic matters. We will collect soil samples from the organic layer at Svartberget, Åheden, Rosinedal, Flakaliden and analyze molecular composition of soil organic matters as well as enzymatic activities responsible for C decomposition.

Comparison of ecosystem C and N stocks in Norway spruce vs. Scots pine stands throughout Sweden

PI: Robert Blasko

We are evaluating the performance of Norway spruce vs. Scots pine stands at the sites equally suitable for both species in the experiments at Kulbäcksliden 1028-1029, Flakaträsk 2458, Övra 1061, and Björkheden 1062. The aim is to evaluate how the different species productivity affects C and N stocks of he ecosystem and some of the important C fluxes; soil CO2 efflux and litterfall.

Impacts of tree species identity and mixing on ecosystem C and N stocks

PI: Robert Blasko

The original aim of this experiment was to compare the growth of Scots pine vs. Norway spruce, and their mixture at a medium fertility site near Främlingshem suitable for the growth of both species. Our aim was to evaluate the effects of tree species and their mixing on ecosystem C and N stocks, as well as on some of the important C fluxes.

Effects of intensive N fertilization on ecosystem C and N stocks, soil CO2 efflux, and litterfall

PI: Robert Blasko

We use Fiberskog experimental sites 1523-1527 along a latitudinal gradient in Sweden to evaluate the effects of intensive N fertilization (100 kg N ha-1 year-1) on the ecosystem C and N stocks, and important C fluxes.

Long-term nutrient optimization for potential forest growth and yield

PI: Hyungwoo Lim

We determine the response of biomass production and carbon accumulation in response to 30 years tree nutrition optimization. Tree nutrition has been administrated based on annual foliar nutrient detection and corresponding fertilization.

Impact of nutrition and climate change on the structure and function of boreal coniferous forests

PI: Sune Linder

Long-term studies of the effects of optimised fertilisation (Flakaliden) and nitrogen addition (Rosinedal) on the structure and function of boreal forests.Projects at these sites range from microbiology to forest management.
