Corrigendum Seifert and Prosche (2017): Longterm development of ant assemblages of recultivated woodland and free-succession open-land habitats in a former strip mining area. Soil Organisms 89(3): 157-176.
In an email to Soil Organisms from Feb., 27th 2020 Alexander Prosche retracted an article published with him as co-author. The first author Bernhard Seifert, therefore, herewith declares: The field work on study plot SP 238 was done by Alexander Prosche with only short-term participation and supervision by Bernhard Seifert. All data on this test plot and any conclusion drawn in this context in Seifert & Prosche (2017) are not credible and must be retracted.
