Becker, L; Miehe, G; Miehe, S; Seeber, E; Li, X; Kuzyakov, Y; Guggenberger, G: Suberin and Cutin as biomarkers for shifts in plant community composition following land use changes on the Tibetan Plateau
Poster, 7th Sino-German Workshop on Tibetan Plateau Research, Hamburg: 2011-03-03 - 2011-03-06

There is still a debate if the Kobresia biome on the Tibetan Plateau is human induced or climate driven. Grazing exclosure experiments show a fast replacement of Cyperaceae by Poaceae. This points to a zoo-anthropogenic influenced plant composition. We aimed to find biomarker to distinguish between different grasses and herbs dominating under different conditions.
