Litter Quality of Populus Species as Affected by Free-Air CO2

Article English OPEN
Vermue, E. ; Buurman, P. ; Hoosbeek, M.R. (2009)

The effect of elevated CO2 and nitrogen fertilization on the molecular chemistry of litter of three Populus species and associated soil organic matter (SOM) was investigated by pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. The results are based on 147 quantified organ... View more
