Determining nutrient availability in terrestrial ecosystems

Nutrients are key for ecosystem productivity, community composition, plant functioning, plant-microbe interactions etc. However, we currently lack harmonized datasets to enable thorough comparison of (the influence of) nutrient availability on terrestrial ecosystems. In the following poster, I suggest relatively simple measurements that enable characterizing nutrient availability and following dynamics in the availability of important nutrients. Anyone interested in contributing such data to our datasets, please contact me: sara.vicca(at)uantwerpen.be
