  • Two watersheds within 1 km of each other in the Central Appalachian mountains of West Virginia have similar management histories and receive 13 kg of N in atmospheric deposition, but NO3 � export from one watershed (W4) has increased over the last 30 years, and is now approximately five times greater than NO3 � export from the other (W10). We measured net nitrification potentials (NNP) and other landscape, soil, and plant community variables (1) to determine whether differences in leaching… CONTINUE READING
