Summary We question the reasoning of the authors who claim that their evidence strongly supports a long-term ecosystem development model in which phosphorus (P) is the factor that leads to the regression phase of the succession. Parent material, relief (topography and drainage) and climates (past and present) are key factors that were not considered sufficiently or critically. Their choice of P as the most important factor determining the direction of the succession overlooks other likely… Expand
