Immobilization and availability of N and P in the forest floors of fertilized Rocky Mountain coniferous forests

  title={Immobilization and availability of N and P in the forest floors of fertilized Rocky Mountain coniferous forests},
  author={Cindy E. Prescott and Jacob Corbin and Dennis Parkinson},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
The rates of key processes related to the recycling of nutrients in the forest floor were monitored for four years following the application of ammonium phosphate sulphate to small plots in mature stands of lodgepole pine, white spruce, and Engelmann spruce-subalpine fir, and a small clearcut. Net mineralization of nitrogen and phosphorus were initially enhanced by fertilization, but microbial activity and biomass were unchanged. Nitrification was increased on fertilized plots on the clearcut… CONTINUE READING
