Drivers of spatial variability in urban plant and soil isotopic composition in the Los Angeles basin

  author={Wenwen Wang and Diane E. Pataki},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
We explored drivers of the spatial variability of plant carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) isotopes in the Los Angeles Basin and the implications of such plant isotopes for alterations to urban environments. We made simultaneous measurements of plant and soil isotopes, air pollutant concentrations, and soil N cycling. The common winter annual Bromus (B. hordeaceus and B. madritensis) and 0–10 cm soil were sampled at 13–15 sites located near air quality monitoring stations in 2008 and 2009. The N… CONTINUE READING
