The present study was carried out to understand whether fine root growth and N mineralization are synchronized in such a manner that helps to conserve N in the humid subtropical forest ecosystem, and to assess whether or not these processes are influenced by human disturbance. The study was conducted in two pairs of undisturbed and disturbed stands of subtropical humid forest in the Jaintia hill district of Meghalaya, northeast India. The amount of fine root (540–754 g m−2) and coarse root (307… Expand
