Project description

The main objective of this research proposal is to study the tree-species dependent long-term changes in P fractions as a consequence of afforestation of agricultural land. The study will deliver a statistical model that predicts relationships between the bioavailability of P and the proportion between different soil P-fractions as a function of forest age and tree species.
