Nitrogen is a critically important nutrient for plant growth in healthy forests; denitrification removes this nutrient from the ecosystem resulting in reduced growth and productivity. Research teams lead by EEB faculty member, Dr. Christine Goodale contribute to a better understanding of nitrogen cycles: "Nitrogen is the nutrient that most often limits rates of plant growth, yet the cycling and fate of nitrogen in forests has been difficult to track." EEB undergraduate students (pictured) assist with research examining stream nutrient losses in northeastern forests.
