Nutrient transfer from penguin colonies to the vegetation at Cape Hallett: A measurement of the transfer of organic nitrogen in the form of ammonia
Entry ID: K024_2004_2006_NZ_3

Abstract: The transfer of nutrients from marine to terrestrial ecosystems are though to be important for vegetation. The transfer rate of organic nitrogen in the form of ammonia from the penguin colonies to the vegetation was analysed. Initial estimates were carried out in the 04-05 season. Ammonia traps were set up to determine the potential for ammonia transfer, ammonia concentrations in air were made at ... View entire text
