Title: Soil nitrogen transformations under Populus tremuloides, Betula papyrifera and Acer saccharum following 3 years exposure to elevated CO2 and O3

Author: Holmes, William E.; Zak, Donald R.; Pregitzer, Kurt S.; King, John S.;

Date: 2003

Source: Global Change Biology. 9: 1743-1750.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

Increases in atmospheric CO2 and tropospheric O3 may affect forest N cycling by altering plant litter production and the availability of substrates for microbial metabolism. Three years following the establishment of our free-air CO2-O3 enrichment experiment, plant growth has been stimulated by elevated CO2 resulting in greater substrate input to soil; elevated O3 has counteracted this effect. We hypothesized that rates of soil N cycling would be enhanced by greater plant productivity under elevated CO2, and that CO2 effects would be dampened by O3.

Keywords: Acer, Betula, CO2, immobilization, mineralization, 15N, N cycling, O3, Populus
