Soil cores collected under mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa) trees at several sites and under Larrea at one site at the Jornada LTER were incubated to determine the N-mineralization potential.
Data file information for the following Jornada data set: Deep Soil Cores N-Mineralization
Soil samples collected 5/12 and 5/13/86 to survey N availability in a variety of grassland and mesquite habitats. Objective is development of hypotheses about desertification processes that degrade grassland into mesquite dominated ecosystems. Measurements made of inorganic soil nitrogen.
