  • PHOSPHORUS IN THE ENVIRONMENT: Natural Flows and Human ...

    Abstract Phosphorus has a number of indispensable biochemical roles, but it does not have a rapid global cycle akin to the circulations of C or N. Natural mobilization of the element, a part of the grand geotectonic denudationuplift cycle, is slow, and low solubility of phosphates and their rapid transformation to insoluble forms make the element commonly the growthlimiting nutrient ...
