Chronic nitrogen deposition may affect the long-term survival of plant populations. The northern pitcher plant, Sarracenia purpurea, is a model system for forecasting extinction risk in the face of increasing nitrogen deposition. Uptake of N occurs directly from pitcher leaves, which fill with rainwater and prey, and accumulate nutrients. We monitored the demography of two populations of S. purpurea in ombrotrophic bogs of northern New England (USA) and described population growth with a four… CONTINUE READING
