Nutrient limitation and plant and soil microbial growth in an Arctic coastal salt marsh.
Sarah K. Hargreaves
In order to assess the nutrient limitation of plants and soil microorganisms in the Arctic coastal salt marsh at La Perouse Bay, Manitoba, a nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) fertilization experiment was conducted. The partitioning of carbon (C), N and P was measured from June 2003 to July 2004. Soil solution inorganic N and P results indicate that the system is strongly limited by N and, to a lesser extent by P. Results indicate that strong N-limitation and high concentrations of inorganic P compared to dissolved organic P moderate the release of phosphatases. Primary productivity is co-limited by N and P, while soil microbial biomass is limited by carbon. Plants and microbes compete for N, but not P, during the summer. Overall, there was a seasonal shift in the allocation of nutrients within the community, from a microbial dominated system in the winter to a plant-dominated system in the summer.

Microbial Processes and Plant Nutrient Availability in Arctic soils. Introduction. Several characteristics of arctic soils influence microbial activity, nutrient mineralization, and nutrient availability to plants and will certainly figure prominently in changes in these processes in a warmer arctic climate. Microbial respiration and microbial C were significantly lower in grazed areas than in herbivore exclosures in both unfertilized and fertilized treatments, indicating that herbivores limit the C available for the soil microbes. Microbial N was significantly increased in the exclosures in the fertilized treatment, but there were no effects in the unfertilized by:

Nutrient Limitation and Plant and Soil Microbial Growth in an Arctic Coastal Salt : Sarah K. Hargreaves. The fertilization experiments indicated that both N and P limit plant growth in the salt marsh, although the system is closer to P saturation than to N saturation.
In contrast, plant growth in the freshwater marsh is constrained by phosphorus availability, with added nitrogen having little effect on plant by: In this study amounts of microbial biomass and the availability of carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) for microbial and plant growth in wet peaty soils of an Arctic sedge meadow have been determined across the winter–spring by: Total amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium in above-ground biomass per unit area showed similar differences in limitation.
3 Leaves of preferred forage species have higher nutrient concentrations (nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium. Plant and microbial nitrogen (N) dynamics were examined in soils of an Arctic salt marsh beneath goose‐grazed swards and in degraded soils.
The degraded soils are the outcome of intensive destructive foraging by geese, which results in vegetation loss and near‐irreversible changes in soil by: 1 Plant and microbial nitrogen (N) dynamics were examined in soils of an Arctic salt marsh beneath goose-grazed swards and in degraded soils.

Coastal salt marshes play an important role in maintaining the balance of atmospheric carbon dioxide and serve as carbon sink with an estimated carbon Cited by: Seasonal growth responses of plants and soil microorganisms to additions of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and carbon (C) were examined in goose-grazed and exclosed plots in an Arctic salt marsh.
Plants showed strong growth responses to N and NP additions but not to P. Nitrogen levels in the shoots and roots of Puccinellia phryganodes declined as summer by: 6. Such limitation is directly relevant for the fate of soil carbon and global element cycles, but its extent and nature have never been assessed systematically across the tropical biome.
Here, we address the relative importance of nitrogen, phosphorus, and other nutrients in limiting soil microbial biomass and process rates in tropical by: We computed the concentration of the available form of nutrients in salt marsh soil relative to Hoagland's nutrient solution.
Based on this ratio, plant nutrients in salt marshes were classified into four groups: osmotic adjustment group (Cl), potentially toxic group (Mg, B, S). Energy flows through an ecosystem in a one-way stream, from primary producers to various consumers.

Microbial Competition in Polar Soils. Several reviews have highlighted the extent and importance of intermicrobial competition in natural environments [23,24], but few studies have characterized competition in polar environments, with only a handful examining competition among polar soil microorganisms (Table 1).A single gram of soil may contain thousands of microbial species  as Cited by: growth and distribution of wetland plants.
Nutrients, especially for nitrogen, are highly dependent on soil moisture levels, and dry soil is usually concomitant with nutrient deﬁciency (Bonetto et al., ; Rejma´nkova´ et al., ).
Studies have shown that N and P levels limit species distribution in some wetlands (Verhoeven & Schmitz.

However, Arctic plant growth is not limited by an inability to utilize any of the available forms of nitrogen.
