Rhuabon Moor

Rhuabon Moor, Wrexham
Two long term experiments at this site:
Monitoring the impacts of nitrogen, management intervention and burning on heather moorland.  New work will compare post and pre burn leaching losses and re-vegetation by Calluna and other species.  After 1 year, the N application will be removed from half of each plot and the changes in plant community composition monitored.

Application of N and P treatments to assess P limitation at this site. New work will remove N treatment to half of each plot and changes in vegetation composition, and in soil microbial populations in response to N reductions will be assessed.
