The impacts of nitrogen on acidic and calcareous grasslands has been studied here for the past 18 years, and include interactions with phosphate. A series of plots have now had their N treatments ceased allowing the study of recovery of these systems along side continued study of ongoing N deposition effects.  Main study areas include impacts on botanical composition including flowering, soil microbial functioning, plant nutrient acquisition and changes in soil chemistry.
