We assessed the effects of sucrose addition on the biological and chemical properties of organic soil in clear-cut Norway spruce forests managed with or without wood-ash fertilization and mechanical site preparation. Sucrose addition increased the abundances of enchytraeids and tardigrades and soil moisture percentage in the clear-cut areas. Sucrose also increased nematode abundance in the non-fertilized plots. Sucrose reduced the pool of waterextractable NH4-N in the soil in the first year, but increased it in the second year. Sucrose addition did not affect the decomposition rate of cellulose strips. The biomass of ground vegetation was not affected by sucrose. Carbohydrate addition seems to enhance N immobilization in clear-cut areas in the short term, and it is suggested that aims at reducing N loss from disturbed forest soil do not necessarily accelerate carbon loss from the forest ecosystem.

Contrasting Norway spruce disturbance dynamics in managed forests and strict forest reserves in Slovakia Potterf, Mária; Svitok, Marek; Mezei, Pavel; Jarčuška, Benjamín; Jakuš, Rastislav; Blaženec, Miroslav; Hlásny, Tomáš (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2023)Forest disturbances are intensifying globally, yet regional drivers of these dynamics remain poorly understood. We investigated recent disturbance intensities in Norway spruce (Picea abies L.) forests in Slovakia ...
Varila, Toni; Brännström, Hanna; Kilpeläinen, Petri; Hellström, Jarkko; Romar, Henrik; Nurmi, Juha; Lassi, Ulla (Dept. of Wood and Paper Science, College of Natural Resources, North Carolina State University, 2020)Fresh bark from spruce Picea abies was milled and extracted with hot water. The extracts were purified in a number of steps in order to get tannin-extracts pure enough to prepare tannin-based carbon foams. The chemical ...
Kataja-aho, Saana; Hannonen, Paloma; Liukkonen, Titta; Rosten, Hertta; Koivula, Matti J.; Koponen, Seppo; Haimi, Jari (Elsevier BV, 2016)Forest fuel harvesting increases the need to collect not just logging residues but also tree stumps from harvested stands. This biomass removal has raised concern over forest biodiversity. Here, the effects of stump ...
Lahti, Riikka; Bergna, Davide; Romar, Henrik; Tuuttila, Tero; Hu, Tao; Lassi, Ulla (AIDIC, 2017)Activated carbons are widely used in different industrial processes for example as adsorbents or as support materials. Advantageously these carbons can be prepared from residual or waste biomass materials. Different raw ...
The shift from Scots pine to Norway spruce in southern Swedish forestry: consequences for biodiversity Petersson, Lisa (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)The specific management prescriptions used in production forest stands have direct implications for the biodiversity these managed lands support. A key management prescription in intensively managed production forests is ...
