Different spatial patterns of nitrogen and phosphorus resorption efficiencies in China’s forests

Nutrient resorption is an important internal-strategy for plant to retain nutrients. However, the spatial patterns of nitrogen and phosphorus resorption efficiencies (NRE, PRE) in national scales are still unexplored. In this study, we first estimated the magnitudes of NRE and PRE, and explored their spatial patterns across China’s forests based on the… CONTINUE READING
