Publication Changes in plant species richness and productivity in response to decreased nitrogen inputs in grassland in southern England
This paper, published in a Special Issue of the journal Ecological Indicators to mark 20 years of data collection at ECN terrestrial sites, focusses on changes in grassland plant species diversity at Wytham, southern England, before and after a transition from conventional to organic farming.

Publication Modelling impacts of atmospheric deposition and temperature on long-term DOC trends
ECN and the Forest Level II monitoring network are the UK’s only source of information on long-term change in soil water chemistry. In this study, soil solution chemistry data from three upland ECN sites and three UK ICP Forest Level II sites were modelled using the dynamic soil chemistry model, MADOC, which simulates long-term changes in carbon and nitrogen cycling and soil acidity. Results suggest that future dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations may exceed preindustrial levels due to nitrogen pollution, which has implications for drinking water catchment management.

Publication Release from sheep‐grazing appears to put some heart back into upland vegetation: A comparison of nutritional properties of plant species in long‐term grazing experiments
This study at ECN Moor House in the English Pennine hills compares the nutritional properties of plant species in sheep-grazed and ungrazed upland plots. The study is based on long-term grazing exclosures at Moor House that are now coordinated by ECN and supported by the Ecological Continuity Trust (ECT). The authors contributed the front cover image for this issue of Annals of Applied Biology.
