Soil water status influences plant nitrogen use: a case study

  title={Soil water status influences plant nitrogen use: a case study},
  author={Zhi-you Yuan and Ling-hao Li},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
We studied differences in nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) among six species [Calamagrostis epigejos (L.) Roth., Carex duriuscula C.A. Mey., Phragmites communis (L.) Trin., Salix gordejevii Y.L. Chang, Salix cheilophila Schneid., and Typha minima Funk.] growing in two contrasting habitat types, i.e., a riverine wetland with high water supply and a riparian zone with low water supply. The two sites were different in soil water supply, but not in nitrogen supply. Here, NUE was defined as the total… CONTINUE READING
