Abstract

To determine to what extent environmental factors and anthropogenic disturbances dictate N dynamics in tropical forest soils, changes of concentrations of inorganic N in soil were investigated during a period of extreme climatic conditions caused by El Niño and La Niña. This allowed the determination of factors driving the N-dynamics in tropical soils more clearly than during normal seasonal cycles. Three N-limited pine forests in Central Java, Indonesia, were studied monthly for over a year. N-NH
