Harmonized stand inventory on National Soil Inventory: stand structure, dead wood and biodiversity

Soil characteristics and forest conditions are direct associated. With the harmonized stand inventory standardized information of forest growth, deadwood and forest regeneration are collected for the first time on Soil Inventory Plots in Germany.

National Forest Soil Inventory

The BZE characterises the condition of forest soils, identifies changes in forest condition since the first inventory and answers any new research questions, e.g., about carbon inventory.

Entnahme von Proben der organischen Auflage mittels Stechzylinder an einem der 8 Satelliten der BZE. 
Standardmäßig erfolgte die Probenahme an 8 Entnahmepunkten die ausgehend von einem zentralen Bodenprofil in allen acht Haupt- und Nebenhimmelsrichtungen auf einer Kreisfläche von 10m liegen. Je Auflagehorizont bzw. Tiefenstufe wird eine Mischprobe gebildet um den Effekt kleinräumiger Variabilität  möglichst minimal zu halten.
