It would perhaps come as a surprise to many nonbiological scientists (or even some biologists) to learn that despite our ability to characterize a number of environmental variables, such as climate, along regional or continental gradients, until recently we have had almost no basis for doing so for plant and soil chemistry. New work, including a paper by Han et al . in this issue (pp. 377–385), is beginning to fill in the blanks on this otherwise empty slate. It is well known that long-term… CONTINUE READING
