Assessing long-term land-use legacies in subalpine grasslands by using a plant trait-based generic modelling framework

Quetier, Fabian; Lavorel, S; Liancourt, Pierre; Thebault, Aurelie; Davies, Ian

Description

Background: In European mountains, where semi-natural grasslands have high cultural and nature conservation value, land-use legacies from past ploughing are associated with distinct floristic compositions and ecosystem properties. It remains unknown if these differences are stable or if post-arable grasslands are only transient states that eventually follow a predictable successional pathway.Aims: We use a generic vegetation dynamics model based on plant traits to test these alternative...[Show more]
