A physiologically based model of a grass-legume pasture is used to study the dynamics of these competing species. In our model, we consider carbon and nitrogen pools and fluxes, incorporating competition for light and soil mineral nitrogen, and including the processes of nitrogen fixation, nitrogen losses and dry matter allocation. First, the steadystate responses of each species to nitrogen deposition, to leaching rate, and to other nitrogen losses are examined. We then consider the dynamic… CONTINUE READING
