Embargo lifted: our new paper on stoichiometric impacts of N deposition published in Science

Posted by Jim:

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.

Elser, J.J., T. Andersen, J.S. Baron, A. Bergstrom, M. Jansson, M. Kyle, K.R. Nydick, L. Steger, D.O. Hessen. 2009. Shifts in lake N:P stoichiometry and nutrient limitation driven by atmospheric nitrogen deposition. Science 326: 835 – 837.  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.
