The long-term regeneration of calcareous grassland after agricultural intensification is elucidated in Redhead etal. 2014 (Applied Vegetation Science 17: 408-418). The paper generates thoughts about the impact of different pre-purchase agricultural practices. It makes the reader think about the seeming contradiction of reducing soil fertility, grazing and atmospheric deposition. And what is it that prevents some characteristic species from re-establishing even after 150yrs of regeneration?
