  author={Esteban G. Jobb{\'a}gy and Robert B. Jackson},
[1] The onset of groundwater consumption by plants can initiate a pathway of chemical inputs from aquifers to ecosystems, typically absent in groundwater recharge areas. We explored this biogeochemical transfer and its influence on soils in phreatophytic eucalypt plantations and native grasslands of the Pampas (Argentina). Groundwater and soil chemical observations at three grassland/plantation pairs were complemented with more detailed analyses along a 400-m-long grassland-plantation transect… CONTINUE READING
