The response of the Amazon forest to elevated CO2 could depend on soil P uptake by plants

check out our new paper coordinated by the amazing Katrin Fleischer from LSAI TUM. By comparing the response of a nutrient poor tropical forest in Central Amazon in a model comparison of 14 different models it turned out that when soil phosphorus was implemented as a constrained the C uptake of the forest can be reduced.

Congratulations Katrin!
