Photodegradation accelerates ecosystem N cycling in a simulated California grassland

Asao, Shinichi; Parton, William J; Chen, Maosi; Gao, Wei


Photodegradation accelerates litter decay in arid grasslands where plant growth and litter decay are strongly controlled by precipitation and evapotranspiration. However, the effects of photodegradation on ecosystem C and N dynamics are not well understood. We examined the effects using an ecosystem biogeochemical model DayCent‐UV with photodegradation explicitly represented and validated. The model was parameterized for a California grassland where photodegradation was documented to release...[Show more]
