wooded area ecosystems signify an incredible variety ofland use in Germanyand in Europe. they supply a couple of features, or atmosphere companies, necessary to people, particularly biomass creation, rules of the water- and effort cyde, C and N sequestration, erosion keep watch over, activity, they usually act as habitat for varied species. the soundness of woodland ecosystems in Europe as inspired through the deposition of air pollution has been a question of discussion for greater than two decades. in addition to atmospheric deposition, different environmental stipulations affecting woodland ecosystems, comparable to temperature, CO content material of the ambience 2 and precipitation, have considerably replaced some time past and proceed to alter sooner or later. Quantifying and predicting the consequences of those alterations on ecosys­ tem functioning are achallenge to atmosphere study and likewise a demand to set up sustainable use of woodland ecosystems sooner or later. This booklet summarizes result of long term, interdisciplinary atmosphere examine performed in forested catchments and coordinated on the Bayreuth Institute of Terrestrial atmosphere learn (BITÖK), college of Bayreuth, Germany. It doesn't goal to summarize the entire learn of BITÖ okay some time past decade, which might move some distance past the experiences in those capture­ ments. in its place, we focus the following at the long term advancements within the biogeochemistry of carbon and mineral parts and at the water cyde, at either the plot and the catchment scale.
