abstract
Alarmed by the worldwide loss of biodiversity, several international initiatives are undertaken to gather knowledge on biodiversity conservation and ecosystem restoration. Within the Natura 2000 network, member states of the EU are urged to take measures for maintaining and restoring natural habitats. For Flanders, new natural habitat has to be restored on agricultural land. The restoration of species-rich grasslands on former agricultural land, however, faces major bottle-necks and restoration has shown variable success. High soil nutrient levels hinder species diversity through favouring fast growing, competitive species which outcompete other, subordinate species. Loss of terrestrial plant biodiversity has been both linked to high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus (P). P is one of the least mobile mineral nutrients and many post-agricultural soils have large reserves as a consequence of heavy fertilisation during decades. This paper focuses on the topic of nature restoration on former agricultural fields, more particular on P as bottleneck for nature restoration. We explain the biogeochemical behaviour of P in the soil and discuss the process of internal eutrophication. We also discuss why biogeochemical knowledge is necessary for nature restoration. In our next paper we focus on which techniques nature managers can use for habitat restoration.
