Changing urban phosphorus metabolism: Evidence from Longyan City, China
Rapid worldwide urbanization calls for a better understanding of phosphorus (P) metabolism and the interaction of the physical, ecological and social drivers of P cycling in urban systems. We quantified the P metabolism in Longyan, a city with a major agricultural economy, and analyzed its long-term trends over the rapid urbanization period of 1985-2010. Both input P (from 4811. t P to 14,296. t P) and output P (from 4565. t P to 13,509. t P) increased significantly. The agricultural subsystem...[Show more]
