We conducted a field-manipulated experiment to assess whether changes in precipitation and nitrogen (N) deposition alter ecosystem carbon (C) and N storage. Both C and N pools of plant and soil were monitored when urea-N (17.5 g N m−2) and water (increasing mean annual precipitation by 50%) were added to a temperate steppe. After 2 years of treatments, both… CONTINUE READING
