Effects of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilization on alpine plant phenology: Post-1993 Data
Entry ID: lternwt0034

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The effects of nitrogen, phosphorus, and nitrogen+phosphorus
fertilization on phenology of alpine plants was examined. This was a
preliminary study to determine if the phenologies of dry meadow plants
were affected by nutrient amendments, and if they were, which species
responded most to the treatments. Times of emergence, senescence, and
other key vegetative and reproductive "events" were recorded.
