Abstract
Previous papers in the series ‘Focus on biogeochemistry’ handled over causes for acidification and eutrophication and consequences for bio- diversity. It was concluded that in order to restore species-rich habitat- types, biogeochemical properties should be taken into account. Next to restoring the hydrology, nutrient removal is often at hand. In this pa- per, we focus on which nutrient depleting techniques nature managers can use for habitat restoration on ex-agricultural fields. It is not likely that mowing and removing nutrients with hay and P-mining are attainable measures to recreate nutrient-poor habitat types on intensively used agricultural fields. Topsoil removal, a more severe technique with risks for acidification, is recommended in those cases. Else, a change of targeted habitat-type is necessary. Phosphorus-mining is a technique to be used in fields where the nutrient stock to be removed is relatively small. A transition period from P-mining to mowing with hay removal would be optimal because with the latter technique also biotic restoration can start with, if necessary, reintroduction of species through hay transfer or seeding. Species-rich habitat-types should be primarily re- stored on fields that were not fertilized as severely.
