Abstract In deserts organic matter and nitrogen are limited due to the most obvious characteristics of plant cover scarcity and low productivity. In order to establish whether an area is undergoing a progressive, long-term decline in biodiversity and productivity, more and more attention is being paid to temporal dynamics of organic carbon and nitrogen in desert ecosystems. In this study, a follow-up was performed on the temporal dynamics of carbon and nitrogen in a loessial plain in the Negev… CONTINUE READING
