Variations in soil N cycling and trace gas emissions in wet tropical forests

  title={Variations in soil N cycling and trace gas emissions in wet tropical forests},
  author={G W Holtgrieve and Peter K. Jewett and Pamela Ann Matson},
We used a previously described precipitation gradient in a tropical montane ecosystem of Hawai’i to evaluate how changes in mean annual precipitation (MAP) affect the processes resulting in the loss of N via trace gases. We evaluated three Hawaiian forests ranging from 2200 to 4050 mm year−1 MAP with constant temperature, parent material, ecosystem age, and vegetation. In situ fluxes of N2O and NO, soil inorganic nitrogen pools (NH 4 + and NO 3 − ), net nitrification, and net mineralization… CONTINUE READING
