Foliar N and P Resorption in Invasive Ailanthus altissima (Mill.) Swingle (Simaroubaceae) Species
İstilacı Ailanthus altissima (Mill.) Swingle (Simaroubaceae) Türünün Yaprak N ve P Rezorbsiyonu

Burak SÜRMEN [1]


In this study, leaf N and P resorption levels of invasive Ailanthus altissima (Mill.) Swingle species were investigated during the development season. Resorption is the mechanism by which nutrients are transported back to perennial tissues. This mechanism is an important part of the nutrient cycling in trees and shrubs. Resorption has been affected by nutrient concentration of habitat, plant species and using strategies of nutrients. A. altissima is both opportunistic and nutrient conservative strategy in terms of ecologically. So, resorption should be evaluated together these factors. The study area was selected as forested area in the Hendek district of Sakarya province where the disturbance was effective. Similar areas in terms of vegetation and environmental characteristics (soil, topography, etc.) were selected. Three individuals of A. altissima were identified from each area and both leaf and soil samples were taken during the vegetation period. According to the findings, the N resorption ability of the species was found to be high and P resorption ability was close to the limit values. In addition, it was found that different soil properties (nutrient content, pH and electrical conductivity) did not adversely affect the amount of N resorption.

Bu çalışmada, istilacı Ailanthus altissima (Mill.) Swingle türünün gelişme mevsimi boyunca yaprak N ve P rezorbsiyon düzeyleri araştırılmıştır. Rezorbsiyon, besin maddelerinin çok yıllık dokulara yeniden taşınma mekanizmasıdır. Bu mekanizma ağaç ve çalılarda besin maddesi döngüsünün önemli bir bölümünü oluşturmaktadır. Rezorbsiyon, yetişme ortamının besin içeriği, bitki türü ve besin maddelerinin kullanım stratejilerinden etkilenmektedir. A. altissima ekolojik açıdan hem fırsatçı hem de besin koruma stratejisine sahip bir türdür. Bu nedenle rezorbsiyon olayının bu özelliklerle birlikte değerlendirilmesi gerekir. Çalışma alanı olarak Sakarya ili Hendek ilçesinde tahribatın etkili olduğu ormanlık alan seçilmiştir. Vejetasyon ve çevresel özellikler (toprak, topoğrafik vb.) bakımından benzer alanlar seçilmiştir. Her alandan 3 A. altissima birey tespit edilip, vejetasyon dönemi boyunca hem yaprak hem de toprak örnekleri alınmıştır. Elde edilen bulgulara göre türün N rezorbsiyon yeteneğinin yüksek düzeyde, P rezorbsiyon yeteneğinin ise sınır değerlere yakın olduğu bulunmuştur. Ayrıca farklı toprak özelliklerinin (besin içeriği, pH ve elektriksel iletkenlik) N rezorbsiyon miktarını olumsuz etkilemediği tespit edilmiştir.
