Nitrogen and Phosphorus limitation

Brown University

Sullivan's page

I am interested in the interrelationship between geology and biology, in particular in understanding how geologic processes influence the functioning of ecosystems. My honors thesis explores whether the availability of nitrogen or phosphorus limits plant growth in the Luquillo mountains of Puerto Rico, and whether this limitation varies across gradients of topography and soil parent material at the landscape scale.
