Treść
The research aimed at characterising the properties of soils and waters of ash-alder carr in the phase of humification and accumulation of organic matter. In order to determine the soil and water properties of the wetland habitats in the Błedowskie Swamp, four experimental areas were appointed, where a single soil pit was made in each and piezometers for water sampling were installed in the same places. In the soil and water samples collected for analysis assessed were basic chemical and physical properties. In order to determine the species composition and the community structure, phytosociological term – a floristic list with valuation of cover with plant species – were made in the studied areas using a traditional Braun-Blanquet method. It was established that due to a lowering of ground water level in the western part of the Błedowskie Swamp, chemical properties of the soils and waters of ash-alder forest wetlands changed, as well as the trend of pedogenic processes occurring in these soils. The change in the habitat conditions is associated with species composition of vegetation covering the wetlands at the accumulation and humification phase. Patches of ash-alder carrs with natural hydrographic conditions revealed a greater floristic richness in comparison with the patches, where hydrographic conditions were disturbed.
