3421 The role of ancillary benefits on the value of agricultural soils carbon sequestration programmes: Evidence from a latent class approach to Andalusian olive groves. The research assesses society's willingness to pay using a discrete choice analysis for a soil management programme in Andalusian olive groves identifying different groups based on preference heterogeneity. The results show that soil carbon sequestration in olive groves provides net social value and can be a cheap and cost-effective way of combating climate change.

3418 The influence of cover crops and tillage on water and sediment yield, and on nutrient, and organic matter losses in an olive orchard on a sandy loam soil Rainfall, runoff, sediments, nutrient and organic carbon losses from 8 × 60 m plots were measured during four hydrological years (2002†“2007) in a field trial, in which two different soil management systems were used to confirm this hypothesis: a cover crop (CC), and conventional tillage (CT) near Seville, southern Spain.

3522 The Fortuna Restoration Project The aim of the project was to connecting agricultural polder Fortuna (2.115 ha) to the Danube regime. Restoration of hydrological regime and hydrological functions means for this area, restoring and establishing the following functions: - habitat for plants and animals typical alluvial areas; - habitat and breeding area for fish and aquatic birds; - reservoir for biodiversity and providing genetic resources; - biocoridor and genetic exchange; - organic production; - biogeochemical circuit elements; - retention of sediments and pollutions; Black Sea biofilter.

3521 The evolution process in Holbina-Dunavat area during restoration works Mainly during the last decades of the 20th century, the Danube Delta has suffered from human interventions that led to dramatic changes in some areas. These interventions consisted in the dyking of large areas for the purpose of agricultural use, intensive fish-farming and forestry, which resulted in dramatic alterations or disturbances of the water balance. This again had effects on the alteration of natural processes, the ecological balance as well as the characteristic functions of wetlands and led to a deterioration or worse, the loss of area-specific habitats. When the transformation measures were stopped in early 1990, the dyked area covered 97.408 ha (22 %) of the total 482.592 ha. Holbina-Dunavat Restoration Project, Romania

3309 The aesthetic performance of urban landscape-based stormwater management systems: a review of twenty projects in northern Europe Driven by the challenge of adapting cities to climate change, stormwater management is high on the agenda of landscape architectural practice. This article aims to set light on associated landscape changes, presenting and evaluating twenty Northern European stormwater management projects with a specific view on their aesthetic performance. Five key parameters form the base for the analysis. These include 1) terrain changes, 2) construction and maintenance, 3) site history and context, 4) water dynamics and dimensioning, and 5) stormwater accentuation. Observations are illustrated by exemplary photos, arranged and discussed among varying cases. The study indicates that visible stormwater management enhances the experience of local terrain. However, stormwater management is weak as a main design feature and staging water ‘at any cost’ results in unsettled designs. Successful projects include only a few key water features and focus on programmatic interaction within the specific context.
