Seasonal nutrient dynamics in the vegetation on a Southern Appalachian watershed. [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Nutrient dynamics in vegetation play an important role in determining the circulation and storage of nutrients in an ecosystem. The major objectives of this study were to estimate the plant nutrient pools on a hardwood forest watershed at Coweeta, on a seasonal basis and to relate any observed trends to seasonal productivity and phenology. Major conclusions of the study were (1) individual species and different plant components have nutrient storage-pool turnover times ranging from one year to several hundred years. Canopy species are important in long- and short-term nutrient cycles. (2) Even though most of the annual nutrient uptake is recycled the same season, the total accumulation of nutrients is considerable in a mature forest stand.
