Project: Nutrient losses in runoff from grassland and shrubland habitats in southern New Mexico: I. Rainfall simulation experiments

Project ID: 210381000
Funding Source: LTER III

Rainfall simulation experiments were performed in aras of semiarid grassland (Boutelous eriopoda) and arid shrubland (Larrea tridentata). The objective was to compare the runoff of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) from these habitats to assess whether losses of soil nutrients are associated with the invasion of grasslands by shrubs.
