  • BACKGROUND AND AIMS Increased levels of nitrogen (N) deposition lead to enhanced N contents and reduced productivity of many bryophyte species. This study aimed at elucidating the mechanisms by which enhanced N uptake may cause growth reduction of bryophytes, focusing on the effects of N addition on carbon (C) metabolism of bryophytes. METHODS Plantlets of Thuidium tamariscinum and Hylocomium splendens were fertilized with NH(4)NO(3) (N load equalling 30 kg ha(-1) year(-1)) for 80 d… CONTINUE READING
