- ... Plant diversity effects on ecosystem functioning can potentially interact with global climate by altering fluxes of the radiatively active trace gases nitrous oxide (N₂O) and methane (CH₄). We studied the effects of grassland species richness (1–16) in combination with application of fertilizer (nitrogen:phosphorus:potassium = 100:43.6:83 kg ha⁻¹ a⁻¹) on N₂O and CH₄ fluxes in a long-term field exp ...
