Title: Nitrogen fluxes and retention in urban watershed ecosystems

Author: Groffman, Peter M.; Law, Neely L.; Belt, Kenneth T.; Band, Lawrence E.; Fisher, Gary T.

Year: 2004

Publication: Ecosystems. 7: 394-403.

Abstract: Although the watershed approach has long been used to study whole-ecosystem function, it has seldom been applied to study human-dominated systems, especially those dominated by urban and suburban land uses. Here we present 3 years of data on nitrogen (N) losses from one completely forested, one agricultural, and six urban/suburban watersheds, and input--output N budgets for suburban, forested, and agricultural watersheds. The work is a product of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study, a longterm study of urban and suburban ecosystems, and a component of the US National Science Foundation's long-term ecological research (LTER) network.
