Plant-soil interactions in primary succession at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

  title={Plant-soil interactions in primary succession at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park},
  author={Pamela Ann Matson},
Plant nutrient status and physiological processes were examined in relation to soil nutrient characteristics under individuals of five species colonizing a young cinder deposit in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Two exotic species, Buddeleja asiatica and Myrica faya, had high photosynthetic rates and high nitrogen concentrations and relatively easily decomposed leaves; soils under them had high concentrations of nitrogen, cations, and organic matter and high rates of net nitrogen mineralization… CONTINUE READING
