Resum:

In a Mediterranean shrubland, we investigated the effects of the projected warming and drought on soil urease, protease and β-glucosidase activities and the relation of the possible changes in the activities of these enzymes with the observed changes in soil moisture, soil pH and in C and N stocks in soils, leaves and leaf litter during 1 year (April 2004-May 2005). This investigation was conducted in a long-term experiment of warming and drought manipulation that began in 1999 and is lasting until now. Warming increased soil urease activity by 10% in the study period, mainly by increasing soil urease activity 30% in winter and 10% in spring, and increased β-glucosidase activity 38% in spring. Soil urease and β-glucosidase activities were positively correlated with soil temperatures in winter and negatively in summer. Warming increased soil enzyme activities in winter when soil moisture was highest and in spring coinciding with the greatest biological activity. Warming decreased NH4 + soil concentration in the spring of 2004 (by 30%) and 2005 (by 72%), in consonance with the increase in N uptake by plants. Warming decreased N concentration in Globularia alypum leaf litter, increasing C/N leaf ratio by 30% showing an increase in N mobilization and contributing to a greater total N accumulation in plants. However, the greater NO3 - availability in soil observed under warming, probably by an increase in nitrification, may lead to a net N loss by leaching under the torrential rainfalls typical of the Mediterranean climate regions. Drought reduced soil protease activity (9%) in the study period, mainly by decreasing it in spring by 13-21%, but did not affect N soil contents because N turn-over reduction was counterbalanced by a decrease in N leaf concentrations. Soil protease activity was positively correlated with soil water content showing a strong dependence of this enzyme on soil water content. Drought did not affect β-glucosidase activity but tended to increase C contents in soils, which together with the increase in C/N in leaves indicate a reduction of C turn-over and a trend to increase C stocks in soil at long term. The effects of warming and drought on soil enzyme activities were due to a direct effect on soil temperature and soil water content, respectively, and not to changes on soil organic matter quantity and nutritional quality. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.

Resum:

A field experiment consisting of drought and warming manipulation was conducted in a Mediterranean shrubland dominated by the shrubs Erica multiflora and Globularia alypum. The aim was to investigate the effects of the climatic changes predicted by IPCC models for the coming decades on trace element concentration and accumulation in aboveground biomass, plant litter, and soil. Warming increased concentrations and aboveground accumulation of some trace elements related to plant root uptake, such as Al, As, Cr, Cu, and partially Pb. This effect was more general in E. multiflora than in G. alypum. The stronger effects were increases in Al leaf concentrations (42%) and aboveground accumulation (500 g ha-1) in E. multiflora, in As stem biomass accumulation (0.2 g ha-1) in E. multiflora, and in Cr leaf concentrations (51%) in G. alypum and stem aboveground accumulation in E. multiflora (1.1 g ha-1). These species-specific increases were related to greater retranslocation, photosynthetic capacity and growth in E. multiflora than in G. alypum. Warming decreased the concentrations of some trace elements in leaf litter, implying the existence of an increased leaf retranslocation. Drought increased As (40%) and Cd (55%) in E. multiflora stems, whereas it decreased Cu (50%) in leaves, Ni (28%) in stems and Pb (32%) in leaf litter of G. alypum. The increasing concentrations of some trace elements in E. multiflora and not in G. alypum were related to a greater growth reduction in E. multiflora than in G. alypum. Warming increased As soil solubility (67%) and decreased total soil As (21%). Those changes were related to a greater Fe mobilization in warming plot and to a greater plant capture. Drought increased Hg (350%) concentrations in soils but had no significant effects on trace element accumulation in aboveground biomass. The different response to warming and drought in the two dominant species implies uneven changes in the quality of the plant tissues that may have implications for herbivores. This may be specially important for the performance of the studied Mediterranean ecosystems under the warmer and drier conditions predicted by the next decades by the GCM and ecophysiological models. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
