Tidal estuarine wetlands of China are rich in plant diversity, but several global change drivers, such as species invasion, are currently affecting the biogeochemical cycles of these ecosystems. We seasonally analyzed the carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P) concentrations in litters and soils and in leaves, stems, and roots of the C3 invasive species Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud. and of the C4 native species Cyperus malaccensis var. brevifolius Boeckeler to investigate… CONTINUE READING
