Decomposition and colonization by microarthropods of pine root litter Pinus nigra and Pinus sylvestris in a minicontainer test on reclaimed forest stands Abbau und Mikroarthropoden-Besiedlung von Kiefern-Wurzelstreu Pinus nigra und Pinus sylvestris im Minicontainer-Test auf rekultivierten Forststandorten

In one Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stand and one Black pine (Pinus nigra ARNOLD) stand on carboniferous substrates in the Lusatian lignite mining district the decomposition of root-litter was studied using the minicontainer method according to EISENBEIS. The minicontainer were vertically placed into the soil down to a depth of 55 cm and 60 cm, respectively. After 10 months, the root litter of Scots pine had lost 20% in the Of-layer and in the mineral soil. The litter mass loss of roots of P. nigra was 9% at maximum in 8 cm soil depth. Two weeks after inserting the minicontainer in the soil, the root litter of P. sylvestris was colonized by microarthropods (collembola and mites). After 10 months, the root litter of P. nigra was colonized by more microarthropods than the root litter of P. sylvestris, but this difference was not significant. The observed nitrogen loss from P. sylvestris root litter amounted to 16% and between 8% and 13% for the P. nigra root litter.
