AIMS: Grazing exclusion practices can be promising restoration techniques where ecosystem degradation follows from rapidly increasing grazing pressure, as widely observed in northern Chinese grasslands. However, the mechanisms of plant-soil interactions responsible for nutrient cycling restoration remain unclear. METHODS: We examined the functional response of the two most dominant grass species w ...
