The news releases have begun to appear for our paper showing that N deposition to lakes shifts phytoplankton from N-limited to P-limited growth in Colorado and Norway and Sweden. Links are below, including a video interview in the NitrogenNews link.

Thanks and congratulations to all who were involved in this project. It was a lot of work! Special thanks to the brilliant Laura Steger who ran the bioassays to perfection. And to Marcia Kyle who kept it all glued together.
