Research on the soils of karst areas in Hungary (example from BŁkk Mountain)
Aniků Zseni - (28/2,1999)
The author studied the characteristics of the soil nutrient system in a Hungarian karst area, that is on 8 km2 area of the BŁkk plateau. The pH, total carbonate content, total soil-nitrogen content, plant available calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus contents of 63 soil samples were measured. She was able to compare the nutrient system of the soils which occurred in different ecological conditions. There are differences between the nutrient status of the soils of the beech and pine forest and the open fields. The knowledge of the pH plus the N, P, K, Ca, Mg content of the soils can be important regarding the protection of the environment, the maintenance of the forest and the management of the meadows.
