Data: 2016
Resum: 1. The impact of long-term nitrogen (N) deposition is under-studied in phosphorus (P)-limited subtropical forests. We exploited historically collected herbarium specimens to investigate potential physiological responses of trees in three subtropical forests representing an urban-to-rural gradient, across which N deposition has probably varied over the past six decades. We measured foliar [N] and [P] and stable carbon (δ¹³C), oxygen (δ¹⁸O) and nitrogen (δ¹⁵N) isotopic compositions in tissue from herbarium specimens of plant species collected from 1947 to 2014. - 2. Foliar [N] and N : P increased, and (δ¹⁵N and [P] decreased in the two forests close to urban centers. Consistent with recent studies demonstrating that N deposition in the region is 15N-depleted, these data suggest that the increased foliar [N] and N : P, and decreased [P], may be attributable to atmospheric deposition and associated enhancement of P limitation. - 3. Estimates of intrinsic water use efficiency calculated from foliar (δ¹³C decreased by c. 30% from the 1950s to 2014, contrasting with multiple studies investigating similar parameters in N-limited forests. This effect may reflect decreased photosynthesis, as suggested by a conceptual model of foliar (δ¹³C and δ¹⁸O. - 4. Long-term N deposition may exacerbate P limitation and mitigate projected increases in carbon stocks driven by elevated CO₂ in forests on P-limited soils.
