The allometry of plant height explains species loss under nitrogen addition


Nitrogen enrichment due to anthropogenic activities is becoming a worldwide problem threatening ecosystem biodiversity and functions. Light asymmetry, with a higher light acquisition per unit biomass for larger plants, has been proposed as a major mechanism of species loss after nitrogen addition. However, solid evidence for this has been scarce. In this talk, I will provide some unique evidence for light asymmetry induced species loss after eight-year nitrogen addition and a new insight from the perspective of allometric scaling to explain biodiversity maintenance in the face of global changes.
