Accumulation of Nitrogen and Phosphorus in Aboveground Biomass following Fertilization in Two Alpine Tundra Communities
Entry ID: brdlter0032

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: To determine whether there are differences in the relative capacity of
communities to accumulate nutrients N and P standing crops were
measured following fertilization in two alpine tundra communities. Dry
meadow had greater increases in aboveground N standing crop and tissue
N concentration in response to N fertilization than the wet
meadow. The wet meadow had a greater P accumulation response to P
fertilization than the dry meadow.
