Abstract
A full implementation of the Habitats Directive implies that all enlisted habitats and species attain a favourable conservation status all over the European territory. In Northern Belgium an expansion of natural landscapes and forests with 25 000 ha is necessary. To fulfill this target a conversion of nutrient enriched agricultural land is often needed. The restoration of habitats on former agricultural land has shown variable success. One of the most important bottlenecks for ecosystem restoration on former agricultural land is the large stock of nutrients, in particular nitrogen and phosphorus. Human efforts to restore nutrient-poor conditions likely become an...
