Abstract

The feather moss Pleurozium schreberi (Brid.) Mitt. is colonized by cyanobacteria, which fix substantial amounts of atmospheric nitrogen (N) in pristine and N-poor ecosystems. Cyanobacterial N2 fixation is inhibited by N deposition. However, the threshold of N input that leads to the inhibition of N2 fixation has not been adequately investigated. Further, the ability of N2 fixation to recover in mosses from high N deposition areas has not been studied to date.
