Project ID
Change associated with nitrogen deposition in the soil will alter ecosystem function and diversity. This study looks at precisely how plants and soil will interact to respond to the addition of N at various levels and in different forms.
Key Question
How can research determine how nitrogen increases affect certain ecosystems?
The project developed infrastructure and baseline data to study the effect of chronic, low-level nitrogen addition in grassland ecosystems, such as tall grass prairie.
