Plant Community Response to Long-Term N and P Fertilization
The objective of the Duke N and P fertilizer study in three Everglades plant communities (sawgrass, mixed sawgrass–cattail, and slough) was to determine the long-term (>6 years) effects of fertilizer additions on (1) biomass production and diversity of macrophytes, (2) nutrient concentrations in the tissues of emergent and submergent macrophytes, (3) changes in plant community species composition, and (4) soil phosphorus chemistry.
