  • AbstractRock colonization by plant roots and their associated microbiota is one of the major drivers of mineral weathering, nutrient cycling, soil formation and ecosystem stability. Yet the mechanisms of bio-uptake of lithogenic elements from rocks with differential nutrient availabilities and limitations are yet to be established. Here we present results from a mesocosm experiment that examined lithogenic element dissolution and uptake (P, K, Ca, Mg, Mn, Fe, Na, Ti, Al and Si) in Bouteloua… CONTINUE READING
