Nitrogen Loading and Terrestrial Vegetation

This project had the following objectives: 1. Determine if existing vegetation data in the RMWB can provide a vegetation baseline dataset against which to assess potential changes in terrestrial vegetation related to N loading from industrial emissions; 2. Provide recommendations on development ofa monitoring program and baseline plot network for assessing effects of N deposition on vegetation; and, 3. Provide a high-level overview of options and approaches for the development of empirical critical loads for N-sensitive ecosystems in the RMWB and provide recommendations on how these options could be integrated into a long-term monitoring program.
