Methods to describe the botanical composition of vegetation in grassland research

dynamics enable to identify medium and long-term effects. For this reason, the description of the botanical composition of meadows and pastures is essential in grassland science and is therefore an indispensable part of monitoring and analysis both in field trials and field surveys. Grassland vegetation can be surveyed at different scaling levels: from a global point of view with the help of remote sensing up to small areas using different methods. It is possible to switch between these scales, whereas the aggregation of detailed data to a global scale is much easier

Prevalence of QoI resistance and mtDNA diversity in the Irish Zymoseptoria tritici population

), which also targets cytochrome b , albeit at a different location to that of the QoIs, it is imperative to understand the diversity of the mtDNA within Irish Z. tritici populations. To achieve these goals, a broad screen of the Irish Z. tritici population was conducted in 2016, whilst a more detailed analysis including mtDNA diversity was conducted on three local populations established in 2017. Materials and methods Collection, isolation and storage of Z. tritici Wheat leaf samples showing visible STB symptoms were collected from 65 commercial winter

Potential methane production and oxidation along the soil chronosequence of the Rotmoos glacier forefield

and showed an in situ methane release. However, the diversity of methanotrophic microbial communities and the potential CH 4 oxidation increased with soil age; and 80- to 150-year-old soils were shown to take up methane ( Bárcena et al., 2010 , 2011). In previous batch experiments, it was shown that soils from the Rotmoos glacier foreland can produce and oxidize methane under certain conditions, thus showing that methanogens and methanotrophs can be present and active at these sites. However, soil age alone could not explain the alterations in potential methane

The impact of cattle drinking points on aquatic macroinvertebrates in streams in south-east Ireland

Green, Low-Carbon Agri-Environment Scheme (GLAS) bovine exclusion measure did not allow any bovine access to watercourses ( DAFM, 2015 ). The latest EU (Good Agricultural Practice for Protection of Waters) Regulations 2017 (S.I. No. 605 of 2017) excludes bovine access to watercourses on farms with a stocking rate >170 kg N/ha from 2021. Aquatic macroinvertebrates are widely used as bioindicators in stream ecosystems (e.g. WFD evaluation of ecological status of rivers) due to their abundance, diversity and range of responses to environmental stressors ( Hodkinson and
