Strontium source and depth of uptake shifts with substrate age in semiarid ecosystems

Abstract

Without exogenous rock-derived nutrient sources, terrestrial ecosystems may eventually regress or reach a terminal steady state, but the degree to which exogenous nutrient sources buffer or slow to a theoretical terminal steady state remains unclear. We used strontium isotope ratios (Sr/Sr) as a tracer and measured Sr/Sr values in aeolian dust, soils, and… (More)
