Responses of Forest Ecosystems to Environmental Changes
Place of publication
The acidification of soils has affected many forest ecosystems in the industrialized regions of the world. Data from ion budget studies indicate that there may be a remarkable retention of inorganically bound sulfate in these soils.
It remains uncertain how previously adsorbed sulfate will react when sulfur loading is decreased. In this regard, desorption of previously adsorbed SO42- may affect the sulfate concentration in the soil solution.
