Daniel Goll (University of Augsburg): Phosphorus controls on land carbon uptake Phosphorus is a critical element for all life on Earth, but rarely in abundant supply. As a result, biological processes are often limited by phosphorus which has consequences for greenhouse gas exchanges, food & fibre production as well as (nature-based) negative emission technologies. In this talk, the role of phosphorus in land carbon cycling and climate change mitigation is being discussed based on results from the land surface model... View Article

This study showed that phosphorus availability reduced the projected CO2-induced biomass carbon growth by about 50% over 15 years compared to estimates from carbon and carbon-nitrogen models.
