5th issue (October 2016)

Members of the German Research Consortium met two of their many obligations: They published another high-ranking, multi-author paper and summarized their research results in a booklet for knowledge transfer. The Coordinators also describe how the research stations will operate from now on and how research will continue in a new Research Unit after the official end of the present Research Consortium.
The Science News cover a plant-frugivore network analysis and progresses towards reliable and easy to measure indicators for biodiversity, climate change and land-use alternations in the tropical mountain rainforest, as well as pine-fungi relationships and carbon stocks in Pine plantations in the Paramo ecosystem.

4th issue (December 2015)

Science and Knowledge-Transfer news encompass

  • first full-length paper on the competition between pasture grass (Setaria) and strong weed (bracken)
  • how tree roots and the mycorrhiza fungi respond to nutrient manipulations
  • in which way phosphate liberating soil enzymes depend on climatic conditions
  • why the altitudinal gradient of tree assemblages disproved the general validity of the Tropical Conservatism Hypothesis.
  • which measures are appropriate to determine daily carbon uptake in trees
  • which tree functional types display different water relations in the dry forest
  • how to create a soil map for remote or less accessible areas
  • which sampling design for digital soil mapping closes the gap between the statistical desired quality of samples and operational applicability
  • in which way the high resolution climate indicator system can be used to recognize climate change in southern Ecuador

2nd issue (November 2014)

Scientists working in the tropical mountain rain forest report first results: They depict the impacts of nutrient additions on mycorrhiza as well as on the activity of phosphomonoesterases in the organic layer. Others describe the relationship between canopy evapotranspiration and leaf transpiration derived from a novel observational approach. First research results derive from the other two ecosystems under investigation: leaf phenology and tree water use was analyzed in the dry forest whereas the effects of roads on the avifauna were studied in the Cajas National Park. The Newsletter rounds off describing the successful approval of the dry forest area in the provinces Loja and El Oro as an UNESCO biosphere reserve where the application initiative was mainly pushed by the non-university partner NCI, supported by the DFG-PAK scientists. Now all three research sites belong to three different UNESCO biosphere reserves.

1st issue (April 2014)

The Newsletter offers results from research and knowledge transfer, new methods and models, as well as results which contrast current opinions. They concern plant distributions, canopy evapotranspriation and leaf photosynthesis, wood anatomy, the fate of fertilized phosphorus, transit times of water in the catchment related to land use, digital soil maps and the development of local climate indicators. It also displays maps of research plots and describes research infrastructures.

English newsletter, 44 pages, editorial work: texts and images, managing editor

19th issue (March 2013):

20 groups of scientists covering several scientific disciplines summarize major results of their research in this last issue: They report about science-directed and sustainable land-use systems and present protocols for optimization of sustainable forest and pasture management. Specific reactions of species and of the ecosystem tropical mountain forest (TMF) to increasing loads of nutrient input are shown. The researchers also summarize effects of altered precipitation and temperatures on nitrogen fluxes as well as on plant and animal diversity. They furthermore present new animal species and mycorrhiza types and describe how environmental change influences climate and the ecosystem. The milestones achieved in the data warehouse are visualized. The researchers also offer new methods and introduce species to successfully monitor global change impacts.

The speakers give a glimpse on the complex review procedure of the projects for the new Research Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Monitoring in South Ecuador. NCI describes the application to the UNESCO for the first biosphere reserve in the Ecuadorian Western Cordillera. The Science News presents the famers’ preferences of land use options for recultivation of abandoned areas. An analysis of nitrogen fixation shows why nutrient budgets should include the canopy.

16th issue (March 2012):

For the first time scientists report about the income of small farms as well as about their plant and land use which were analyzed by thorough interviews. Members of the Research Unit show how the forest responds to elevated nitrogen deposition and display nitrogen, nitrous oxide and nitric oxide fluxes. They also explain climate-growth-relationships in trees, and describe the factors which are affecting the spatial distribution of trees.
