Urban Phosphorus Metabolism through Food Consumption: The Case of China
Urbanization has significant impacts on local, regional, and global biogeochemical cycles, including through nutrient enrichment by food consumption, and especially in rapidly urbanizing countries. This article presents a time-series estimation of phosphorus (P) metabolism through food consumption in Chinese cities and examines its relationship to income level during the period 1985-2006. Our results show that approximately 39% of the total dietary P inflow is exported through direct sewage...[Show more]
