Peter Reich, U-M School for Environment and Sustainability Institute for Global Change Biology director and ecologist, discusses new evidence regarding a dual trajectory in nitrogen availability. Reich and co-authors explain how the world is simultaneously experiencing both too much and too little nitrogen, acting as a toxin if there is too much and causing trouble to the overall health, productivity, and function of organisms and the ecosystem when there is too little nitrogen. The faculty expert explains their research and what this means for the world and its ecosystems.
