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 at- tainable 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 restora- tion 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.
