Factors controlling carbon and nutrient cycling according to the climatic and vegetation gradients of the ECOLEAP sites
Estimate fluxes of carbon and nutrients on ECOLEAP sites and their satellite sites.
Develop relationships between carbon and nutrients fluxes and climate, site type and forest composition.
Determine the nutritional constraints on forest productivity (jack pine, black spruce and balsam fir stands).
Determine the contribution of edaphic factors to forest productivity at different scales.
