Mg and Ca root uptake and vertical transfer in soils assessed by an in situ ecosystem-scale multi-isotopic (26Mg & 44Ca) tracing experiment in a beech stand (Breuil-Chenue, France)

Abstract

The sustainability of forest ecosystems may be at stake especially in forests on base-poor soils due to reduced nutrient deposition and intensified silvicultural practices. Understanding nutrient availability and cycling is therefore essential to manage forest soil fertility. This study aims to assess in a beech plot Mg and Ca vertical transfer in soil and… (More)
