Effects of environmental conditions and space on species turnover for three plant functional groups in Brazilian savannas

Aims Different plant functional groups display diverging responses to the same environmental gradients. Here, we assess the effects of environmental and spatial predictors on species turnover of three functional groups of Brazilian savannas (Cerrado) plants—trees,...

Nitric and nitrous oxide fluxes from intensifying crop agriculture in the seasonally dry tropical Amazon–Cerrado border region

apid expansion and intensification of crop agriculture in the tropics may accelerate ecosystem losses of reactive nitrogen (N). We quantified emissions of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrous oxide (N2O) in forest, single-cropped soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], and...
