Abstract [en]

In the past, arable fields were established locally on the alvar on Öland. Several persisted until the present time, but some of them were abandoned shorter or longer ago. We found a series of arable fields forming a chronosequence: still cultivated, ca. 20 years abandoned, ca. 50 years abandoned, and never cultivated. Species of man-influenced habitats gradually disappeared from the former arable fields, but a few persisted after 50 years. A group of alvar species had re-established after 20 years, but others did not re-establish even after 50 years of abandonment, although they are present in the local species pool. We found no evidence of dispersal as a constraint for re-establishment.
