Resource stoichiometry elucidates the structure and function of arbuscular mycorrhizas across scales. Nancy Collins Johnson. 2009; New Phytologist – Wiley InterScience.

Here’s another very cool one, from Nancy Johnson.  I met Nancy for the first time last year or so when I visited NAU and gave a talk.

This is a very nice paper that updates the application of resource trade theory (from economics) to the dynamics of mycorhizzal associations in plants.  It is a very astute analysis and well worth a read.

Brian Enquist and I just joked (since we have just finished our own accepted Tansley Review on scaling and stoichiometry in plants to New Phytol) that New Phytologist should really be named “New Phytostoichiometrist” for all the papers on plant stoichiometry they have published recently.
