- Endangered plants persist under phosphorus limitationMartin J Wassen
Environmental Sciences, Copernicus Institute for Sustainable Development and Innovation, Utrecht University, PO Box 80115, 3508 TC Utrecht, The Netherlands
Nature 437:547-50. 2005..Our results highlight the need for a better understanding of the mechanisms of phosphorus enrichment, and for a stronger focus on conservation management to reduce phosphorus availability...

- Nutrients and hydrology indicate the driving mechanisms of peatland surface patterningMaarten B Eppinga
Department of Environmental Sciences, Copernicus Institute, Faculty of Geosciences, Utrecht University, P O Box 80115, 3508 TC Utrecht, The Netherlands
Am Nat 173:803-18. 2009..Therefore, this study provides promising avenues for future empirical studies on peatland patterning...
- How nitrogen and sulphur addition, and a single drought event affect root phosphatase activity in Phalaris arundinaceaBjorn J M Robroek
Department of Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Geosciences, Utrecht University, P O Box 80115, NL 3508 TC Utrecht, The Netherlands
Sci Total Environ 407:2342-8. 2009..Additionally, the addition of S can lead to unexpected effects on the biogeochemistry of P. Our results showed that natural resource managers should be careful when restoring degraded fens or preventing desiccation of fen ecosystems...
- Resource contrast in patterned peatlands increases along a climatic gradientMaarten B Eppinga
Department of Environmental Sciences, Copernicus Institute, Utrecht University, P O Box 80115, 3508 TC Utrecht, The Netherlands
Ecology 91:2344-55. 2010..Our study suggests that future climate change may affect the ecosystem functioning of patterned peatlands by altering the contribution of pattern-forming mechanisms to redistribution of water and nutrients within these systems...
- Climate forcing due to optimization of maximal leaf conductance in subtropical vegetation under rising CO2Hugo Jan de Boer
Environmental Sciences, Copernicus Institute for Sustainable Development, Utrecht University, 3508 TC, Utrecht, The Netherlands
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:4041-6. 2011..We conclude that plant adaptation to rising CO(2) is altering the freshwater cycle and climate and will continue to do so throughout this century...
