The project focusses on litter and soil nutrient turnover at the AmazonFACE plots. Special attention is given to phosphorus cycling (mineralization of organic P; sorption and desorption, microbial immobilization, plant P uptake) and extracellular enzyme activities (facilitating mineralization and as a proxy for ecosystem investments in nutrient acquisition).
