Soil phosphorus control of carbon and nitrogen

clouds, mountains, trees, and shrubs

Do actively cycling C and N pools depend ultimately on soil P supply? Across-biome synthesis In terrestrial systems the nitrogen cycle is more open than the phosphorus cycle. New N accumulates by biological N fixation and atmospheric deposition, and is readily lost from the system when N is in excess of biological demand. In contrast,… Read more »

Synthetic Effort to Characterize the Controls on Nitrogen Transportation through Streams & Rivers

Proposal to for a workshop to assess needs for a large-scale cross-site synthetic effort to characterize the controls on nitrogen transport through streams and rivers Background Human sources now rival natural sources of fixed N to the biosphere, changing the biogeochemistry of both terrestrial and aquatic environments by adding biologically available N, primarily from fossil… Read more »
